Honoring the 

Right Reverend Richard H. Baker 

Chapel Hill 

April 27, 1965 

At this dinner the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 
Carolina gather to do honor to our beloved Bishop — the Rt. Rev. Richard 
H. Baker. We wish in some measure to express our gratitude for his wise 
leadership, which has enabled the diocese to move forward in every area 
of its work. In difficult and troubled times he has exhibited patience, 
understanding and firm commitment to the faith. Through the Companion 
Diocese Program with the Missionary District of Panama, which he initi- 
ated, he has increased our understanding of mission and of our responsi- 
bilities overseas. We are especially grateful for the recognition he has 
given to women permitting us to make fuller use of our talents. His 
infectious good humor has brightened our days. He has demonstrated that 
the Christian life need not be solemn. Most of all we are grateful for his 
warm friendship, freely given. We shall miss him and his gracious wife, 
Lee, but we want them to know that they take with them the gratitude 
and the deep affection of all the Episcopal women of the diocese.

PRAYERS 



OPENING PRAYER 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further 
us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain ever- 
lasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYERS FOR EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOxMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee so to reveal Thy 
love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and 
people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church 
in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer 
abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled 
with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

O God, our heavenly Father, who hast created all men after Thy likeness, 
we beseech Thee to incline Thine ear to us as we ask Thy help in doing our duty 
as Christian citizens and as members of Thy Holy Church. We acknowledge our 
many transgressions of Thy righteous law and especially our failure to see Thine 
image of all Thy children for whose sake Thy Son was content to die. Grant that 
we may follow in the steps of Him with whom there was no respect of persons. 

Make us ready to acknowledge the Truth as it stands written in Thy Holy 
Word. Give us courage in our thinking and honesty in our decision. Lift us above 
self-interest and prejudice and whatsoever else may hinder us from a just and 
righteous dealing with our neighbor. Guide with thy wisdom those to whom Thou 
hast committed the responsibility of government, that all things pertaining to the 
relationship of man with man may be settled upon the sure foundation of Thy 
Holy Will as made to us in Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

— The Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, D.D. 

PRAYERS FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers into 
Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard and guide 
the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept 
from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, and gifts, and joyful 
service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them 



with Thy children in all the world ; for his sake whose life and death and rising 
to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and 
the Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of 
Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the 
glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and the 

strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy 
heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. 
May we remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless 
teachers, students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that 
we may find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church 
work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that 
they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the 
saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray 
Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and 
labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark 
places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace stablish Thy Church in 
the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE 
ELECTION OF OFFICERS 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us 
light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. 
Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President 
shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I 

present to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 



RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and 
power. Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt 
their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until 
they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to dis- 
charge the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular at- 
tendance at the Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His 
purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's 
kingdom in this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high 
sense of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency 
and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentle- 
ness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they 
daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels 
of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the Diocese. 
Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be 
upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL. CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask 
the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance 
of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts ; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech 
Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special 
work for which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in 
the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for 
service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be 
with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

DIOCESAN INSTITUTIONS 

ST. MARY'S SCHOOL AND JUNIOR COLLEGE, RALEIGH, N. C, dates 
back to 1842. At the present time it provides two years of High School and two 
years of college. It is owned by the five Dioceses of North Carolina and South Car- 
olina. The school is open to qualified students and its applications far outnumber 
the students who can be accommodated. Approximately 55% of the student body 
comes from the Episcopal Church. 

SAINT AUGUSTINE'S COLLEGE, RALEIGH, N. C, was chartered in 1867. 
One third of the negro clergy of our Church have had some part of their educa- 
tion here. The college is co-educational and offers music and art, business adminis- 
tration, teacher training, health and physical education, pre-medical, pre-legal, pre- 
theological training. It is in need of additional dormitory and classroom space. 

PENICK MEMORIAL HOME, SOUTHERN PINES, N. C, will accommodate 
from 40 to 45 persons. It has a chapel, infirmary, lounges and handicraft rooms. 
There is room for 10 or 12 cottages or apartments for those who will be guests of 
the home but prefer to live in their separate quarters. 

THE TERRACES, SOUTHERN PINES, N. C, consists of a beautiful home 
valued at about $140,000.00. It is used as a Conference and Retreat Center, and 
has been widely used during the few years that the diocese has owned it. About 
35 people can be accommodated, and it may be used both by Diocesan groups and 
by individual parishes for meetings or retreats. 

THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE, CHARLOTTE, N. C, is located on 52 
acres of land. Forty acres of this tract have been rented to the Charlotte Town 
Mall. The Orphanage has acquired 422 acres in the country and will move to its 
new location in a few years. In addition to caring for children at the Institution, 
studies and plans are being made to expand the work to foster home care and small 
boarding homes which will house about 8 children plus a couple of foster parents. 

THE UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH, SEWANEE, TENN., is owned by 21 
southern Dioceses, one of which is the Diocese of North Carolina. It consists of the 
College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Theology, The Military Academy. The 
charter was issued in 1858. The magnificent chapel was completed in 1960. It will 
soon embark upon an extensive building and improvement program. 

VADE MECUM is located 26 miles north of Winston-Salem in the Sauras 
Mountains of Stokes County, North Carolina. It is the Camp and Conference center 
of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of North Carolina. 

The program at Vade Mecum is under the direction of the Rev. Leland S. 
Jamieson, Assistant Director of Program for the Diocese and is a part of the 
Church's Summer program for boys and girls, young people, and adults. It offers 
the adventure, good times, and variety in experience which appeal to young people 
as well as adults. 

KANUGA, HENDERSONVILLE, N. C, a conference center of the Episcopal 
Church, is owned by the five Carolina Dioceses and the bulk of the support comes 
from right here in the Carolinas, though there are a good number of individuals 
outside the Carolinas who contribute.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female 
Missionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1871 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Wo- 
man's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise 
money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council 
was set up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary 
only to the Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." 
This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just an 
auxiliary to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Women's 
Work, to represent all of the work of all of the women of the Church. It acts as 
the executive body, on a national level, for EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN is an international, interracial fellowship of 
the women of the Church organized for service to the Church in every phase of its 
life and all fields of its activity. 

TRIENNIUM 
1964-1967 
PURPOSE 

To help the Women of the Church 

RECOGNIZE how God is working in His changing world of today; 

to 
UNDERSTAND the roles and opportunities of Women in the Church and so- 
ciety; 

and to 
LEARN TO RESPOND to the demands which God is placing upon us. 

The program of the Triennium will reflect what is believed to be the chief 
concerns of the Church today. Under such varied titles as Lay Ministry, The 
Church's Mission to the World, The Total Ministry of the Church, We Are 
Christians in an Urban Society, and so forth, we are being called to face realist- 
ically the complexity of the world in which we live, its changing patterns, Christ's 
Lordship over the world, and our responsibility as Christians to serve and to wit- 
ness in His Name. 



12 



Christians must do Christ's Work. Worship, study, and fellowship which are 
part of the life and program of the Church "gathered" should be planned to meet 
the needs of the people who are "called in" and who go out again as Christian 
witnesses. 1 

PRAYER, including Corporate Worship, is essential because every Christian 
person must be in contact and communication with his or her Lord, and because 
without this vital contact we are cut off from our roots and our source of life. 

OBEDIENCE is essential because this is our way of imitating our Lord and 
growing in His likeness. 

SERVICE is essential because this includes all the practical ways in which we 
are of use to God. However, let us not make the mistake of thinking that means 
merely service to the Church or service within the Church. The world is what God 
loved and the world is what Christ died for, and the world is what Christians must 
serve. 

WITNESS is essential because it is necessary for us to let the world know 
Whom we follow, obey, and pray to. Witness is a matter of letting people know 
who we are and why we do what we do. We must be known by our fruits, not to 
our own credit, but to the glory of God so that men might be drawn to Him by our 
example. 2 



ORGANIZATION OF A LOCAL, BRANCH 

Membership. Every woman who is a communicant of the Episcopal Church 
is obviously an "Episcopal Churchwoman." As such her first loyalty is to her parish, 
its worship and program whatever that may be. Remembering, however, that the 
aim of the organization known as "Episcopal Churchwomen" is to help every wom- 
an find her place in the life of the parish and the mission of the Church, we 
would hope that every woman communicant would like to be an active member of 
the organization. Even if it is not always possible for all women communicants to 
attend meetings, the needs, talents and varying responsibilities of all women of the 
parish should be kept in mind when planning the organizational structure, the time 
of meetings and the program and projects. 

Structure. The local organization of a branch may be as simple or as complex 
as the particular situation seems to warrant. In general it is advisable to have 
only one over-all woman's organization in each parish or mission. If the group is 
large or has very different needs, the group may be divided into smaller units, called 
chapters, for more effective service and to permit more women to participate. There 
are no set rules as to how this should be done, but it is important to guard against

fragmentation and preserve the spirit of unity and fellowship which should pervade 
the entire group. 

Officers. It is recommended that medium and large branches elect officers 
corresponding to the Diocesan officers and in addition such others as may be needed 
locally. Very small branches may wish to have a simpler structure, and perhaps 
combine certain related officers. The important thing is to see that all types of ac- 
tivities — worship, study, service, gifts and fellowship are included and that the 
Church beyond the parish in diocese and world are not forgotten. 

Executive Board. The Executive Board of a branch is usually composed of the 
elected officers, committee chairmen, chapter chairman and any member of the 
Executive Council, General Division of Women's Work, Provincial Board or Dio- 
cesan Executive Board who is a communicant of the parish. The rector may choose 
to be an ex officio member. Since this group may be large, it is often advisable to 
have a smaller planning committee composed of the rector, the President, Chairmen 
of Devotional Life, Christian Education, Christian Social Relations, Missions and 
Treasurer (with perhaps one or two others if it seems advisable locally) to meet 
together once or twice a year to plan the programs in the widest sense (all ac- 
tivities), to insure coordination between the different departments and some rela- 
tionship between the worship, study, service and giving of the women of the parish. 

Any branch of twenty-five members or less does not need an Executive Board, 
but again may profit from having a small committee such as that suggested above 
which meets once or twice a year to plan the program and activities, including 
either a budget or some plan of giving to the parish or the mission of the Church. 
Of course the tentative plans of either a small committee or an Executive Board 
are subject to the approval of the entire group in a general meeting of the branch. 

Minimum responsibilities of each branch. 

Prompt attention and reply to communications from diocese or convocation. 

Complete and accurate listing of all officers with notification of changes as they 
occur. 

Representation at Convocation and Annual Meetings, with reports to the 
branch. 

Payment of a pledge to the Diocesan Budget of the Episcopal Churchwomen. 

A program of activity centered in worship, strengthened by study and imple- 
mented by loving service and gifts of time, money and self. 

From the diocese each branch may expect information channelled from the 
National Church and the General Division, help and assistance in specific depart- 
ments, inspiration and instruction at such special opportunities as the Vade Mecum 
Conference, retreats and other special meetings and institutes. There should be a 
two-way line of communication.

Eighty-third Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



Chapel of the Cross 

Chapel Hill, North Carolina 

APRIL 27, 28, 1965 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Annual Meeting 1965 

"Create and Make New", the theme for the Eighty-third Annual Meeting 
of Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, is much more 
than a catchy title selected by chance. Perhaps there are some here who have 
not heard that the 1964-1967 Triennium purpose for Episcopal Churchwomen 
is to help the women of the Church. 

1. RECOGNIZE how God is working in His changing world of today; 

2. UNDERSTAND the roles and opportunities of women in Church and 
society; and 

3. LEARN TO RESPOND to the demands which God is placing upon us. 
Soon after my return from the Triennial Meeting in St. Louis, I began to 

think seriously about the Churchwomen's program in this Diocese and to wonder 
where and how to begin to plan our work for this Triennium, especially in 
relation to this purpose, seemingly impossible to attain. Time and time again 
these words came to me, "Create and Make New". Words of penitence to be 
sure, but also words connoting faith, hope, renewal, obedience, challenge, and 
adventure. As we spend these two days together, I bid you think on these 
words in relation to the threefold purpose for the Triennium. 

The officers' reports, which you will hear, will bear out the statement which 
I made to the Diocesan Convention in February: namely, that the work of 
Churchwomen continues to move steadily onward. This I attribute to excellent 
leadership in the past, to the guidance and cooperation of the Bishops and 
clergy, to the loyal support and devotion of an excellent Executive Board, and 
above all to six thousand or more dedicated women, who work diligently in 
parishes and missions throughout this Diocese. 

Even so the number of branches and the membership remain about the 
same: 104 branches, 6,116 active members. However it should be pointed out 
that 104 branches, a record number, made and paid a pledge in support of the 
1964 budget. The same number sent in United Thank Offerings. We are happy 
to welcome one new branch, St. Mark's, Raleigh. 

The past year has really been a busy year of orientation for me. I have 
traveled many miles to attend many Churchwomen's meetings and innumerable 
Diocesan meetings. Truly I have been impressed and encouraged by the number 
of concerned Christians, both men and women, who are trying sincerely to 
face realistically the complexity of the world in which we live, to understand 
the problems of our changing culture, to learn the meaning of true discipleship, 
indeed to become Christ's faithful followers in the world for which he died. 
Surely these meetings have not been in vain and will prove profitable as we try 
to make our work in the Church more meaningful. 

I rejoice that the status of women is changing in this Diocese. More 
and more women are serving on committees and in conferences with men. By 
vote of the last Diocesan Convention women are now allowed to serve on Vestries 
and Mission Committees on the same basis as men. To my knowledge two have 

23 



been elected already. Make no mistake, however, we must never give the im- 
pression that we are trying to take over, rather that we are longing to work 
together as part of the laity for the renewal and obedience which our Lord is 
demanding of His Church. 

Last year the retiring president left with us a recommendation that the 
time between drawing up a budget and putting it into operation be shortened. 
This matter was referred to the Finance Comimttee ; and upon its recommendation, 
the Executive Board deferred action because, this being the year to change 
treasurers, it seemed inadvisable to change polices at this time. 

The Annual Meeting last year in accepting the Report of the Committee 
on Convocations endorsed the plan to initiate what we are now calling Spring 
Planning Days held in five geographic areas of the Diocese. Mrs. Eugene S. 
Knight, Chairman, will give a progress report on these later. I want to report 
that, after attending one Convocation meeting last spring and six last fall, I am 
convinced we need not only to retain, but also to strengthen the Convocations. 
Great possibilities and challenges lie ahead in these areas. The reports of the Con- 
vocation chairmen indicate that during the past year there were both Spring and 
Fall Meeting in most Convocations, also Quiet Days in the Fall. Two delegates 
to the Triennial Meeting in St. Louis reported at each Fall Meeting. Some 
of the Convocations have special projects. The Northeast has contributed ap- 
proximately $900.00 to the Student Center in Panama to be used for the library; 
the Northwest furnished and stocked the library in the Penick Memorial Home; 
Charlotte is providing used clothing for sales to help finance a local project 
undertaken by St. Michael's and All Angels'; the Sandhills gave $500.00 to 
build a compound in India. Those not having special projects use the offerings 
taken at the meetings for special purposes. Following the February meeting of the 
Executive Board, I realized we had not given enough time to the Convocation 
chairmen and their concerns. Therefore I announced that the first item of new 
business on the September agenda would be Convocations, my intention being 
for Convocation chairmen to share some of their concerns with Diocesan officers 
and to work together on possible solutions. 

Certainly one of the most successful changes since I have been president 
was the Churchwomen's Conference at Vade Mecum last summer when 
workshops were discontinued. The program was designed for every Church- 
woman. The response was most enthusiastic. I trust that increased enthusiasm 
stemming from the change in program will result in increased attendance. An 
excellent program has been planned for the conference in June. You will hear 
more about Vade Mecum tomorrow. 

Now to return to the theme, "Create and Make new". I firmly believe that 
exciting and creative tasks await the Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 
Carolina. Many challenging areas of response will be pointed out today and 
tomorrow. Whatever the area, the imperative is the same — "Create and Make 
New". May God give us grace to respond creatively to the demands He is making 
upon us.

Mrs. M. H. Thompson Representative on the Diocesan Council

unanimous ballot be cast for the name of each nominee. The motion was seconded 
and carried. The President stated that the Representative to the Diocesan 
Council, nominated by Annual Meeting, must be elected by the Diocesan Conven- 
tion. 

At 11:30 a.m., Hymn 522 was sung, after which the President introduced 
Mr. Henry C. Bourne, Chancellor of the Diocese, who gave an address on 
"Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence." Following this inspiring address, 
the following resolution was presented and endorsed: 

MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY AND INTERDEPENDENCE 
IN THE BODY OF CHRIST 

The Anglican Congress, 1963, presented to the Independent Churches of the 
Anglican Communion a document inviting all members of the Anglican Com- 
munion to a new birth in Christian mission, Christian obedience, and Christian 
response ; and 

WHEREAS, the 61st General Convention of the Episcopal Church in the 
United States, 1964, by Resolution, and the Triennial Meeting of Churchwomen, 

28 



accepted this document, committed us to an evaluation and response, in our 
corporate life, our priorities, and our obedience; and 

WHEREAS, the 149th Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina, in 
1965, gladly accepted this commitment on behalf of our Diocese; therefore, 
be it resolved, that the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, 
assembled at its 83rd Annual Meeting in the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, 
North Carolina, April 27-28, 1965, do hereby pledge ourselves to the commitments 
thus made for us and affirm our support and response thereto, God being our 
guide and helper, on the basis of these convictions: 

First, that we will seek renewal and new obedience in every area of the life 
of His Church; 

Second, that we will seek these gifts in ourselves, in our families, in our 
communities, in our State and Nation, and in God's entire world; 

Third, that we will begin both study and action, with full knowledge that 
this renewal and obedience must first be ours as individuals. 

Fourth, that our responsibility is far greater than any financial response 
can discharge, more urgent and costly than self examination can meet; 

Fifth, that Prayer, Bible-Study, new understanding, new priorities for our 
daily life, and renewed acceptance of our personal ministry, are essential needs, 
if we are to have any gifts to make, or any grace to receive; 

Sixth, that we ask each individual and each branch of the Episcopal Church- 
women of the Diocese of North Carolina to continue seeking ways to develop, 
extend, and accept this worldwide call to a renewal of our life in Christ and 
a new obedience to do His will. 



The Rev. Loren B. Mead, Rector of the Church of the Holy Family, Chapel 
Hill, led the meeting in a Litany and prayers at noon-day. The meeting was then 
recessed for lunch in the Parish House. 

The meeting was reconvened at 2:00 p.m. with the singing of Hymn 282. 
Mrs. M. H. Thompson, Delegate to the Annual Meeting of The United Church- 
women of the North Carolina Council of Churches, reported. 

The following persons reported on Camps and Conferences: Mr. Ed Hartley, 
Assistant Director, Kanuga ; The Rev. E. Dudley Colhoun, Jr., Vade Mecum Com- 
mittee, Vade Mecum; Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Director Episcopal Churchwomen's 
Conference, Vade Mecum. 

The President announced that the Churchwomen of the Panama Canal 
Zone had sent their Annual Meeting Offering of $56.60 to the Churchwomen of 
the Diocese of North Carolina in the name of Mutual Responsibility and 
Interdependence. After expressing sincere gratitude for the gracious gift, she 
called on Mrs. Herman, who read and moved the adoption of the recommendation 
of the Executive Board that the money be used for books for the library of 
Saint Augustine's College. It was seconded and carried. 

Mrs. Jackson introduced Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Jr., who recognized and 
paid a very warm tribute to Mr. and Mrs. M. D Whisnant, who are retiring 
in July after twenty-five years of loyal and faithful service to Thompson 
Orphanage. She presented them with a gift of silver from the Churchwomen. They 
expressed their appreciation for the support the Churchwomen had given them. 

29 



The President read an invitation from the Board of Managers and the 
Executive Committee of Thompson Orphanage and the Episcopal Churches of the 
Charlotte Convocation to a reception honoring the Whisnants on Sunday, May 23, 
3 to 6 o'clock, Christ Church Parish House. 

Mrs. George Levings, Chairman of the Committee on Resolutions, submitted 
three resolutions. The first was submitted without recommendation; namely, a 
resolution from Mrs. Matt Wall favoring the abolition of capital punishment in 
North Carolina. Mrs. Wall spoke on the resolution and moved its endorsement. 
The motion was seconded and passed by voice vote. 

The second resolution expressing the Churchwomen's love and appreciation 
of Bishop Baker upon his retirement was duly and unanimously adopted by a 
rising vote. 

The third resolution offering our wholehearted support, loyalty, and coopera- 
tion to Bishop Fraser, who will soon become the new Bishop of the Diocese, was 
duly and unanimously adopted by a rising vote. 

Mrs. Carl Herman, Chairman of the Credentials Committee, presented

an inspiration to all those in attendance, and whereas, such inspiration 
would not have been conveyed without the preparation and devoted efforts

our Provincial Representative, Mrs. J. L. Godfrey, of whom we are all so 
proud; to the Rev. Loren B. Mead for his original and soul-searching 
Litany for the Women of the Diocese; to our most capable and beloved 
President, Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson; and our heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Matt 
Wall and Mrs. T. P. Thomas for portraying the deep feeling each of us 
holds for Bishop and Mrs. Baker and for the delightful way in which they 
have been honored; to Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Jr., for expressing so beautifully 
our appreciation of Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Whisnant. 

For all of these people, places and things, we offer our ultimate thanks 
to our Heavenly Father in whose name we serve.

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

I have examined the Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1964, and the related 
Statement of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended. My examination 
was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and accord- 
ingly included such tests of the accounting records of the organization and other 
procedures as I considered necessary in the circumstances. 

In my opinion, the accompanying Statement of Fund Balances of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1964 and 
the related Statement of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended presenr 
fairly the recorded cash transactions for the year ended December 31, 1964, and 
the resulting fund balances at that date. The books have been kept on a basis 
of cash receipts and disbursements, such basis being usual for this type of 
organization.

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Annual Meeting 1965 

"It is not by what we say or by what we do, but by what we are that we 
draw others into the life in Christ." 

This statement was brought home to me so vividly a few weekends ago 
when the Henderson Rotary Club hosted an International Weekend. Some thirty 
foreign students attending colleges in this state spent the weekend in private 
homes in our town. It was the privilege of my family to entertain a young 
girl from Seoul, Korea who is a graduate student at U. N. C. The weekend 
included some public gatherings, but the basic idea was to give the students the 
opportunity to share in the normal activities of American home life including the 
attendance at worship services on Sunday morning. When we invited Wonbok 
Lee to attend church with us on Sunday morning she very quickly declined 
the invitation saying: "I have no religious belief and do not care to attend your 
church as an observer — I'd rather use that time to observe some of your archi- 
tecture." Needless to say we were a bit taken back by this reply, but wishing to 
be good hosts we felt we must oblige. The family decided to attend early service 
on Sunday morning and then we were free to show some of "our architecture." 
This was my first real person to person encounter with an atheist. Not just the 
college sophomore variety, but one who has been brought up by a generation 
or so of atheists. 

Wonbok spent just twenty-four hours with us. It is very likely that we will 
never see her or hear from her again. What impressions will she carry with 
her from this experience of visiting in a Christian, American home? 

More and more, as the world shrinks, we will cross the paths of persons from 
different parts of the world, different religions, different cultures. If we are to 
be effective witnesses for our faith it must show forth in our lives. We must 
be so prepared that we can speak effectively for Christianity at any unannounced 
moment. 

We are at this moment poised on the edge of a secular and ecumenical age, 
our world has shrunk to almost a parochial place in history. We need leaders with 
faith and the intellectual depth to grasp this world and see far enough into it 
to grope their way, leading others. You, who are here, are leaders in your parish 
church and in your community. Are you prepared to be at every moment a 
witness for Christ? 

What a big order — how can such lowly persons, as we, possibly make a dent 
in the facade of history? It is an accepted fact that Christianity has lost a lot of 
ground in this century. We are a minority group. But before we lose heart let 
us look back over history. What incredible optimism God has! Time and time 
again He has intrusted the course of history into the hands of some very unlikely 
characters or minority groups. Can He not use each of us? 

If God is to use us as His agents in this world it is absolutely necessary that 
we keep in direct contact. We must make time each day to be still so that we can 
listen to God for direction in our lives. We must pray, we must study, and we 
must participate regularly in the corporate worship of the church, especially 
the Holy Communion. 

A Christian life is a disciplined life and we do hate discipline, but I urge you 
to try it. We do need encouragement along this line and I commend to you the 
experience of attending a retreat. The purpose of a retreat is not to cloister 
ourselves apart from the world, but rather to withdraw momentarily, to be 
really still, to have the opportunity for undisturbed and undistracted prayer 
and worship; to be renewed so that we can return to the world with a more 
powerful witness. The experience of a retreat can train us to use those short 
moments of quiet in our daily lives more effectively. The retreats we have held 

47 



in Southern Pines have been enthusiastically attended and I hope that more and 
more people in this diocese will have the opportunity and will take the opportunity 
to participate. 

Again I should like to use in closing some words of T. S. Eliot taken from 
his poem "The Rock," which I recommend to you for reading, for it speaks so 
strongly of our church in this century. 

''Why should men love the Church? Why should they love her laws? 
She tells them of Life and Death, and of all that they would forget. 
She is tender where they would be hard, and hard where they like to be soft. 
She tells them of Evil and Sin, and other unpleasant facts. 
They constantly try to escape 
From darkness outside and within 

By dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good. 
But the man that is will shadow 
The man that pretends to be. 

And the Son of Man was not crucified once for all, 
The blood of the martyrs not shed once for all, 
The lives of the Saints not given once for all: 
But the Son of Man is crucified always 
And there shall be Martyrs and Saints." 

Mrs. Eric Flannagan, Jr. 
Secretary of Devotional Life 



CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Annual Meeting 1965 

When we speak of Christian Education as it specifically applies to us as 
Episcopal Churchwomen, I believe we usually are referring to our program of 
study. Then let us think of this area of study as the opportunity which will 
enable us better to perform our two real functons — to worship and to serve. 

I should like to report on what your executive board has done this year 
to try to help you plan your year's program of study, worship, and action. Our 
all-out effort has been our Spring Planning Days. We have held them in four 
areas of the diocese, and have one yet to go. We have invited four officers from 
each branch to take part in workshops led by their corresponding diocesan officer — 
president, devotional life, Christian social relations, and Christian education. 
These officers, together with the Rev. Charles Greene, diocesan program director, 
have endeavored to help you begin to plan a coordinated program, equally 
balanced in study, worship, and action. 

The response to our effort has been wonderful and exciting. We only hope 
that when you get back home and really begin to plan next year's program, 
your initial response will still hold. And we trust that when you begin to put 
this into actual practice, you will let us know where our planning was weak 
so that next year we may plan more effectively. 

Let me close my report by stealing Bishop Baker's favorite theme to point 
up what we were really trying to help you do — "to create a climate in which 
we may experience the love of God." 

Mrs. Eugene S. Knight 
Secretary Christian Education 



CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
Annual Meeting 1965 

Some of you may have seen the cartoon in the Episcopalian in which Peanuts 
says to his friend, "I'm a child of God, Who are you?'' There we see ourselves 
in varying degrees, having heard only half the Word, spoken in Christ, maybe 
not even having heard the Word at all, for surely to know oneself as a child 
of God, "in Spirit and in Truth", is to know all others as His children and one's 
brothers. Further, "God so loved the world that He sent His son." Now we are the 
Body of Christ, the human expression of Him through whom "the Captives shall 
be freed, the blind receive their sight, and the crippled leap for joy, a sacrifice 
for the healing of the nations!" Are you saying, as I do — Who? Me? Yes, 
for better or for worse, Christians are commissioned to manifest the Love of 
God in this our Day. 

For the coming year it is my hope: 

First, that we might increase in holy imagination in hozv to love our neighbors. 
We feed and clothe and visit and "it is mete and right so to do." But do we love 
enough to find out how they shall feed and clothe themselves and care for their 
sickness in their tomorrows; and for what they really thirst and how their 
spirits are imprisoned? For the essence of love is not deed but creative relation- 
ship, that the one loved might become that for which he has the potential as a 
child of God. It's going to take a bit of de-imaging to turn us into members 
of the Body of Christ in which there are no "we and they," only we. 

Secondly, that we might add to our very important work as "Band-Aid Girls", 
a concern w r hich extends our love to seeking ways to make the conditions under 
which men live more "health-giving." We have to love a great deal to get into 
this kind of social action, for it means informed minds as well as prayerful 
hearts. Some may and ought to associate themselves with power groups; all 
can contribute to a climate of opinion in which creative change can take place 

The War on Poverty is the emphasis in the United Study of the Church 
Women and the National Council of Churches for the next two years. Commenting 
on this the National Board of the Council says, "Since modern technology has 
brought within man's possibilities the elimination of poverty, we are morally 
responsible to work toward this end", this through such things as our pre-school 
enrichment programs, tutoring, literacy classes, job training, and housing. 

Money has been appropriated and programs have been started for the War 
on Poverty, and since the effectiveness of the program will be determined largely 
by how it is utilized in the local community, we should use the program as 
creatively as possible. 

As to race relations, there is only one host at the Lord's Table and it is 
scarcely the prerogative of guests "unworthy even to pick up the crumbs" to 
determine who the other guests shall be. In a sense we are all guests of one 
Host in life, living by His grace; so dignity and freedom and true personhood 
are not gifts which some of us bestow on others, but a legacy from the "Father". 

Mrs. William Penn Price 
Secretary Christian Social Relation 



MISSIONS 
Annual Meeting 1965 

The objectives of this department have been to encourage active participation 
of our branches and churchwomen in the mission of the church as a whole, and 

49 



to inform and guide them in their support of this phase of our Church's life. 
Last year we stressed personalizing the missionaries and getting acquainted with 
them. Lately and in the year to come we want to see how information can and 
should lead to action. We have heard much about Mutual Responsibility and 
Interdependence. We find that it is a matter of Overseas relationships, but also 
that it should begin at home, right where we are. Our whole life must be 
affected by consideration for others, and we need to work together in mutual 
involvement, for the good of the whole Church everywhere. 

Our Mission theme for the coming year is: — "Mission: The Christian Calling". 
It is intended to help all Christians to see themselves personally called to ministry 
and service, as individuals and as members of groups. The resources for study 
will be listed in the Christian Education section of reading materials. 

For news of our missionaries, a new missionary, Miss Teresa Barling, from 
Christ Church, Raleigh, has gone to Fort Yukon, Alaska. She is learning a difficult 
Indian language that she may be able to use it for greater understanding between 
the people and the authorities of the Church. (Because the year book will not 
be out until after her birthday, I will add here that her birthday is May 31st, 
and I hope she will receive many cards and letters.) 

Bishop Harris, formerly Bishop of Liberia, now retired and living in New 
York City, had major surgery last December, but has made a good recovery. 
He is helping at the Foundation for Episcopal Colleges, in New York, and is 
also taking limited preaching and speaking engagements. 

Miss Almeria Gordon is at home at 101 Fraker Place, Spray, after having 
left Singapore on account of her health. She is much better and has started giving 
talks and showing slides of her work in Singapore. 

We have at the Penick Home a dear and energetic lady, Mrs. Ethel Tyng, 
a former missionary to China. She and her husband were in China over 35 years. 
She has published a book of her many interesting experiences there. 

We have been saddened this year to hear of the death of two of our 
retired missionaries, Mrs. Leopold Kroll, who had been in Liberia for many 
years, and Mrs. Annie Cheshire Tucker, who with her husband spent 40 years 
in China. Both had outstanding records of devoted service and of helping 
others. 

From this Diocese our Churchwomen have done much to help throughout the 
world — St. Luke's, Salisbury, is sending $1200, half of their bazaar money, to 
Liberia as a memorial to Mary McKenzie Kroll; $600 has been sent from the 
Sandhills Convocation to complete the building of a church in India, 40 miles 
south of Madras; Northeast Convocation has sent money to Taiwan to help 
the fishermen buy their much-needed boats (called "Holy Light" boats) ; and 
part of our surplus from the diocesan budget for "outside the diocese" is to go 
to St. Paul's Clinic at Kaohsiung, Taiwan, a clinic started by the Rev. Patric 
Hutton. Boxes of food and hospital supplies have gone to Miss Rachel Wolff in 
Nepal, the Epiphany offering and boxes to Miss Jocelyn Gordon in India. The 
Churchwomen have helped greatly toward building the Student Center at the 
University of Panama in our Companion Diocese. The CPC is getting books for 
their Library. Nearer home, the libraries at the Penick Home and at Elon 
College Campus Center have been furnished and decorated by groups of our 
women. There was a heart-warming response to the needs of the Missionary 
District of Alaska in their program of rebuilding after the great earthquake 
of Good Friday, 1964. 

In Haiti a small museum for the children has been started as a memorial 
tribute to Mr. Allan Surratt. While Mrs. Surratt was Mission Secretary for 
this diocese, she and her husband visited Haiti and were particularly interested 
in this school. 

In all of these projects I am sure there has been a warm feeling of sharing 
with friends something that could be of use to them. The letters we receive from 

50 



our wonderful missionaries bring us joy and an intimate understanding of the 
good that is being done by the Church in those areas, and we look forward to 
receiving more letters and learning what we can do for them and for the areas 
they serve. 

I want to thank the Convocation and Branch Mission Secretaries for their 
interest and cooperation this past year, and especially for sending in such full 
reports early enough for me to study them before Annual Meeting. 

In the coming year may we "have the vision that inspires" and "together 
serve Christ in His mission to the world and together witness to His love on 
every continent and island". 

Mrs. Norris L. Hodgkins 
Secretary of Missions 



UNITED THANK OFFEEING 
Annual Meeting 1965 

One of the highlights of my term of office was the opportunity to place the 
certificate for $85,764.80 on the Golden Alms Basin during the service of Holy 
Communion at Triennial. This represented the total amount of the United Thank 
Offering from the Churchwomen of North Carolina during the Triennium 1961- 
1964. The total Ingathering of Episcopal Churchwomen all over the world 
amounted to $4,790,921.51, an increase of over $450,000 from the previous Tri- 
ennium. 

For the current Triennium, the Student Center in Panama will receive 
$15,000 from the United Thank Offering. A $20,000 grant was made in February 
to St. Augustine's, Raleigh, for equipment in the new addition to Penick Hall of 
Science. We in North Carolina are grateful to Churchwomen everywhere for 
their "offerings of thankfulness". 

In 1964, the total offering of Churchwomen of this Diocese, from 104 
Branches, amounted to $27,048.01. The Fall Ingathering was $14,007.88, an 
all-time high. 

The General Division of Women's Work was notified that General Con- 
vention had recommended to Executive Council that free promotion materials 
for all general church offerings be financed from proceeds of the offerings. A 
resolution was then adopted "that up to 1% of the total 1961-1964 United Thank 
Offering be reserved for use during the Triennium 1964-1967 for publication of 
free United Thank Offering materials". There have been many requests for more 
promotional material, and this resolution will make this possible. The United 
Thank Offering Treasurers can depend on continued help to interpret the United 
Thank Offering to the women of the Church. 

The set of slides, "From Grateful Hearts", which shows our Church at 
work in South and Central America, and the Alms Basin may be obtained from 
the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer for use in the Branches. 

I hope that the Churchwomen will continue to have more individual partici- 
pation in the United Thank Offering as one of their goals. In this way will each 
of us find its true meaning — an offering of thanksgiving to God for "special 
blessings at special times". 

In closing, I should like to thank each Branch and Convocation United 
Thank Offering Treasurer for her help during the past three years. I am 
grateful for the opportunity and privilege of having served in this office. 

Mrs. W. A. Goodson, Jr. 

United Thank Offering Treasurer

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

Annual Meeting 1965 

The church is the body of Christ which is composed of people whether they 
be the church in the city, the country or the campus. The church is where ever 
people are. We who are the church must constantly live a life of Christian 
Witness. The most effective way to do College Work is to run a good parish. 
Dr. John Coburn, in his pamphlet, "Priests in a Pagan Community", states "It 
is the home parish where the boy has been identified religiously with his family. 
His religious roots are in his home and in his church, and his really crucial 
years, religiously speaking, are in the years before he ever comes to college." 
Dr. Coburn continues to say when a child goes to college, there are two 
things, and only two, his family can now do; first, to continue to be a Christian 
Witness and second, to pray for the child in his new role of "breaking family 
ties." 

Many students are mixed up before they arrive on campus. A chaplain 
wrote, "On campus it becomes very clear very soon that the churches have 
pretty well failed either in giving adequate Christian Education or in bringing 
the students any understanding of the relevancy of worship ; this task then falls 
to us." 

In the old days of College Work, the church followed its young people 
to the campus and provided them with a bit of the traditonal religious environment 
they had known at home. The church sought to provide a spiritual and social 
"home away from home" trying to hold, and even protect, the young people it 
already had. This view of campus ministry is too narrow and too limited. 

It is impossible to isolate or immunize young people against the world they 
meet on campus and we now understand this to be un-christian as well. 

One of the products of the war is insecurity. When old values, customs, and 
traditions begin to give way, young people have nothing on which to base their 
actions and thus feel insecure. They rebel against the intangible and indefinable — 
unable to explain their actions to themselves or to others. Many are overwhelmed 
by the realization that at the push of a button, they and everything that has 
ever meant anything to them, can be destroyed. 

COLLEGE WORK is MISSION — it must be done with Missionary fervor 
and understanding of Christian Education and love for young people. We must 
be concerned, sensitive to their needs, and try to understand and accept them 
where they are. The church must learn the language and the complexity of 
problems within the University in order to speak to it effectively. 

Our chaplains have a keen sense of purpose and are fulfilling their role 
as Priests by providing the Word and the Sacraments; but they are greatly handi- 
capped in other phases of their Program by a serious lack of funds, and in some 
cases, local cooperation. 

Through the renewed interest of many of the women of our Diocese, funds 
have been given to several chaplains for their discretionary use. Altar linens, 
hangings, vestments and other items have been contributed. Some branches now 
have College Work in their budgets; one convocation reports starting a fund 
for Program. 

More branches than ever are using Cards or Letters of Commendation. 
Several branches report programs presented to the E Y C groups on Church 
Vocations. Christian Ministries literature and displays are being used more and 
more in the parishes. Most churches participated in the Ember Day Corporate 
Service or contributed to the Scholarship Fund. After much consideration, your 
Diocesan Board decided to eliminate the annual Ember Day Corporate Service 
because of many conflicting dates, and they have placed this important item 

52 



in the Budget. Please continue to contribute to this Scholarship Fund. More chap- 
lains are desperately needed to minister to the ever increasing Campus Communi- 
ties. Funds are urgently needed for PROGRAM. Every christian, lay or ordained, 
has a responsibility in the Mission of College Work. 

In the past year, one branch assisted in locating and furnishing a building 
to be used as a student center. This center has a chapel, a chaplain's office, and 
a lounge for Episcopal students, their friends, and faculty. I would like to 
quote from a letter written by a professor at Elon College . . . 

. . ."This Campus Center is a wonderful testimonial of your concern. It has 
become a vital part of the campus community. For the Episcopal students it 
offers a place for communion and a counselor for personal guidance ... A year 
ago the College had no place where students could meet comfortably with each 
other or with faculty members. I can attest, from my own experience, that the 
better part of my education came over a cup of coffee with faculty and student 
friends rather than in the classroom. The Campus Center filled perhaps the most 
pressing physical need that the college had . . . The Center is more than a mere 
physical faculty. It has a spirit about it which is not altogether easy to define 
but nevertheless is very real. The ladies of the Parish, who have been so kind 
to serve, are very much a part of that spirit. The students think of them as a very 
real part of the campus community, and rightfully so. But for all of us, it serves 
as a symbol that someone in the community, and in the church, is genuinely 
concerned . . ." 

Our nation's future depends on our Youth today — our Youth who are seeking 
an education, an identity, and a real purpose to their lives. It's up to us as 
individuals and as the church to help them achieve these goals. 
Mrs. E. E. Carter 
Secretary — College Work and Christian Ministries 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 
Annual Meeting 1965 

This has been a rather quiet year for Altar Work and Service of Exchange 
but much has been accomplished throughout the Diocese. Reports from the 
various Guilds show that they are living up to the purpose of Altar work which is 
to disseminate information and advice concerning: 

a. organization of Junior Guilds 

b. education and devotion 

c. instruction in making and caring for linens. 

Your Chairman has served on a Special Committee on the Chapel for the 
Penick Memorial Home, with the Rev. O'Kelly Whitaker as Chairman. This 
Chapel has been in use for several months and I am happy to report that with 
your cooperation all the linens plus the Missal and Candlelighter were furnished 
by this department. 

Each Diocese in the Province was asked to supply two workers to make the 
needlepoint for the Chapel at Sewanee, 21 Bishops chairs and three cushions 
for the Altar rail. Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Roaring Gap, and Mrs. Claude Hart, 
Elkin, are doing the work for our Diocese. 

The opportunities for Altar Work are ever increasing. May God guide us in 
the way we should go. 

Faithfully yours, 

Mrs. Roy Grinnell 

Chairman of Altar Work fif Service of Exchange

HUMAN RELATIONS 

Annual Meeting 1965 

According to By-Law 11B of the Constitution and By-Laws of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, the president appoints a chairman 
of a Human Relations Committee, who is to assist the Secretary of Christian 
Social Relations. Before last year this committee was called Interracial Committee. 
Before we had an Interracial Committee, we had just an Interracial Chairman. 
During Mrs. Henry Bourne's term of office, Miss Constance Young was 
employed as a field worker for the promotion of the work among the Negro 
branches. She has been listed as a retired missionary since 1954. In 1905 Bishop 
Cheshire organized the Woman's Auxiliary Branches for Negroes in the Diocese, 
in a separate convocation, reporting to him. 

During Mrs. Bickett's Term as president 1920-1924, the Diocese was divided 
into the present eight geographical districts. An Interracial Committee was 
appointed to strengthen interracial relationships and to encourage the work in 
the Negro branches. In 1935 the Negro branches of the Diocese were listed in 
the year book as a Ninth District. 

The Negro District was eliminated in 1954 and all Negro branches became 
integrated into the geographical districts in which they were located. With 
the removal of the 6th delegate in 1963, the Negro Churchwoman became a full 
member of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina. The 
information just stated about the Negro Churchwoman was taken from the 
history which was written by Mrs. Henry Bourne on the occasion of the 75th 
Annual meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

Noting the relationship of the Negro churchwomen to the churchwomen as 
a whole, it is easy to believe that the Negro women felt like foreign mission 
subjects. They were people who had things done for, to and about them — never 
with them. They did not enjoy the christian fellowship and a chance to 
participate in and learn first hand about the main body of the church. 

It has taken 60 years to eliminate the system of special committees for Negro 
problems. Having a Human Relations Committee now to handle the relations 
between the races seems to reactivate the old system. 

I therefore wish to ask this board to consider abolishing the Human 
Relations Committee. 

The program for Christian Social Relations as outlined in our handbook 
makes any program for a Human Relations Committee superfluous. For documen- 
tation of this statement, please read the report of C. S. R. and Interracial Com- 
mittees given at the 1964 annual meeting in Greensboro. 

The Negro has used every legal means open to him for three hundred (300) 
years to try to become a first-class citizen in this great Democracy of ours. We 
can fight for civil rights but we must wait for christian rights to be freely given 
to us. Only the white man himself can take such action as is necessary to know 
the Negro and to learn to live with him in Christian Fellowship. "God knows 
no partiality, but in every nation any one who fears him and does what is right 
is acceptable to him". Acts 10:34, 35. 

Furthermore, the existence of a Human Relations Committee gives the 
C. S. R. Committee a reason for not creating social action programs with regards 
to racial problems. 

The Negro is no longer "The Invisible Man". You will see him in your 
hotels, eating places, public recreational facilities, and jobs. Will you see him in 
your hearts, and in your churches? 

Mrs. Hugh Thompson 
Chairman, Human Relations

SUPPLY 

Annual Meeting 1965 

The program for Supply Work is changing. In some areas need for material 
goods is diminishing and the need for gifts of money to missions is increasing. 
Also rising shipping costs mean that money is increasingly being sent instead 
of goods. We get our assignment from the General Division of Women's Work 
and pay it from the Diocesan budget. The cash assignments this year consisted of: 

Supply Secretary's Gift Fund (Cash) > 35 

Interchurch Medical Assistance $ 25 

All Saints Episcopal Mission, Virgin Islands $200 

The sewing assignment from the Nation office for this year was small and 
was sent to branches in the Convocations of Raleigh, Northwest, and Sandhills. 
Next year it will go to the other Convocations. The garments made were sent 
to the San Juan Mission, New Mexico. 

Good used clothing was sent to the Tuttle Community Center; N. C. State 
Hospital, Raleigh; the Salvation Army and Rescue Mission; Thompson Orph- 
anage; or distributed to fill local needs in hospitals and institutions or as other 
local needs arose. One branch made 60 pairs of new curtains and sent new rugs, 
bed-linens, etc. to the Thompson Orphanage. Over 100 knit bandages for lepers 
were sent from one branch to Liberia. One branch had as a speaker the Attendance 
Counselor for 25 schools of Guilford County. She stressed the great need for good 
clothing, as a number of children were staying at home from school because of 
inadequate clothing and shoes. The response to her talk was tremendous, and 
over 1,000 pieces of clothing were collected. 

The movie "Hunger" (from Church World Service) was shown at some 
branch meetings, dramatizing human needs. 

One of the great values of Supply work is the opportunity it provides for 
a channel of communication between the parish and the mission field and for a 
mutual sharing in the life of Christ. Through Supply work the women of the 
Episcopal Church can share their gifts, offer their prayers, show their friendship; 
and by so doing can not only ease some of the world's pain, but also contribute 
to the growth of our awareness of our brotherhood in Christ. 

Mrs. Max Schiebel 
Secretary of Supply 



LEGISLATION 
Annual Meeting 1965 

In this land of ours church and state are separate, but we are members of 
both; therefore the influence of each should be felt on the other. As God has 
blessed us with this great nation, we should study, pray, and act so as to "prove 
ourselves mindful of His favor, glad to do His will and so show forth His praise 
among the nations of the earth." 

Christian Social Relations Branch Chairmen should have at least one program 
during the year for the Churchwomen on some phase of legislation. It may be 
about how the Churchwomen can make their Christian influence felt in legislation, 
or it may be on some specific legislation that interests the women. It may be about 
what the people should expect of their representatives in government so as to 
aid them in choosing such men. 

55 



The Chairman of Christian Social Relations is responsible for bringing to 
the attention of the Churchwomen the fact that the Church speaks through 
legislation by the way we elect our representatives, whom we elect, and how 
we support them once they are in office. If we are to have a Christian nation, 
the Christian must be active. 

Mrs. Willie J. Long, Jr. 
Legislative Chairman 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Annual Meeting 1965 

My term as Director of the Church Periodical Club ends with the 1965 Annual 
Meeting. It seems appropriate to give a factual report of the CPC work accom- 
plished by the Churchwomen of the diocese during these three years. 

The gifts to the CPC's National Books Fund amounted to $892 in 1962; 
$1016 in 1963; $927 in 196-1 — a total of $2,835, with an average of $945 per 
year. Perhaps these figures reveal a new interest in the CPC when compared 
to the $500 average of prior years. 

Or are they indicative of an awakened sense of mission prevalent in our 
diocese? 

Since 1962, with our companion relationship with Panama, the Church 
Periodical Club has been in the midst of this diocesan program of mission. All 
CPC gifts have been earmarked for Panama; first, to provide books for Christ 
Church Academy in Colon; now to stock the shelves of the library in the new 
student Center in Panama City. The Books Fund for this library is now $2200. 
We will continue to support the project through 1965. 

There is evidence, also, of more local interest in the Church Periodical 
Club; viz, (1) more branches have a CPC Secretary, (2) more requests come for 
CPC information, and (3) more local projects are supported by individual 
branches. 

Much has been accomplished by the Churchwomen, but the possibilities for 
growth of the CPC in our diocese are unlimited. For wherever the Church is 
at work the Church Periodical Club sends reading material, all without charge. 
It is the only organization of the Episcopal Church devoted solely to "The 
Ministry of the Printed Word". Requests for books come to the CPC from 
every continent in the world and are filled as far as your gifts permit. 

There is an urgency today that we communicate with the younger churches 
and peoples now emerging into nationhood. There is an emergency of the need 
for Christian literature. People of every continent are asking questions about the 
Christian faith. Through books secular society can be portrayed and the Church 
can speak. 

We can pursue our full potential as "The Ministry of the Printed Word" 
by continuing to work together through the Church Periodcial Club. Today it 
is with Panama. Tomorrow we should seek new CPC commitments with other 
companions in the Anglican Communion. 

Delores Pitt 

Director, Church Periodical Club

DIOCESAN COUNCIL BEPKESENTATIVE 

Annual Meeting 1965 

I have been one of your representatives on the Diocesan Council for the 
past three years and attending these meetings has been a revealing experience. 
The tasks of our bishops are tremendous and varied. In addition to the primary 
ecclesiatical duties to parishes and individuals, our Bishops possess the business 
ability to manage over a half-million dollar budget; the knowledge to serve as 
chairman of the boards of our schools, social service institutions, camps and con- 
ferences; the crafts of the best of our politicians; and the fortitude and time for 
constant travel. I am also impressed with the time and talent given to the Diocesan 
program by our rectors as well as by many of the busiest and most outstanding 
lay men and women of our state. 

The Diocesan Council has evidently been aware of our theme for this 
meeting, "Create and Make New." As a result of the work of a Committee on 
Structure and Organization, a Long Range Planning Committee was formed 
to evaluate the objectives of the Diocese. After careful examinations of each 
department and an intensive study by the Department of Institutions using 
the professional talents of our lay people, the Council adopted the principle 
of supporting existing programs before it expands these or undertakes new 
programs. Using this principle, the Long Range Planning objectives for '66 
are divided in two classes with the following priorities: For better support of 
existing program, (1) The World Wide Mission of the Church to be directed 
through the M R I Program; (2) Secretarial assistance and discretionary fund for 
the Hospital Chaplain in the Durham-Orange area; (3) Program fund for college 
workers at 33 colleges; (4) Support for the Vade Mecum program; (5) Increased 
support for St. Augustine College. 

The first priority for the Class of New and Expanded Program is the 
expansion of the Mission Program, and the second priority is support for a full- 
time College Chaplain in Greensboro. 

Recognizing the challenging opportunities offered and being embarrassed 
by the inadequacy of the budget to meet those opportunities, we are encouraged 
to report that in spite of the growth of the diocesan budget, both the Episcopal 
Maintenance Fund and the Church's Program Fund ended the year with credit 
balances. 

Ground-breaking services were conducted in January for the new Diocesan 
Headquarters House located on the Raleigh beltline. With a Chapel as the 
center, the building will provide offices for the dioceses' bishops and staff, meeting 
rooms, a kitchen, and a greatly needed vault for archives. The project will be paid 
for over a period of years out of the maintenance budget. This fund is expected 
to be supplemented by gifts and memorials. 

On April 20th the Diocesan Council approved another three-year relationship 
with Panama as our Companion Diocese. It is felt that we have begun to com- 
municate and that under the direction of the Overseas Missions Department we 
will achieve a parish-to-parish relationship and glimpse the concept of Mutual 
Responsibility and Interdependence in the Body of Christ. 

I cannot fail to call to your attention the progress made in our Diocesan 
Program by the additions to the staff of Mr. George Bason as Business Manager, 
the Rev. Charles Greene as Director of Program, and Mr. Ben Park as Executive 
Secretary of the Department of Promotion and Communication. Read your 
North Carolina Churchman to learn the organization of the Department within 
the Council, noting the inclusion of our Churchwomen. 

Our fervent prayer is that God will in some way use this planning of the 
Diocesan Council to create and make in us new and contrite hearts dedicated 
to His Mission.

Diocesan Council Representative

KANUGA 

Annual Meeting 1965 

This past year has been one in which the Kanuga Board has responded 
with positive action to the needs of its total life under the judgment of its 
ultimate purpose. To explain the above statement I should like to report the 
work of a Special Committee of the Kanuga Board. The Committee brought 
to the Board meeting in March 1964 a detailed analysis of purpose, program, 
administrative problems, physical needs, and suggestions for action. From this 
report came the conclusion that Kanuga has as yet only scratched the surface 
of its potential effectiveness. Its ultimate purpose was clearly denned as follows; 
"its total operation exists for the spread of the gospel." 

One urgent need to implement the recommendations of the Special Committee 
as adopted by the Board was the securing of an Executive Director. The Executive 
Director's main concern is the development of program. The present Director, 
Mr. Edgar Hartley, Jr. is to remain as Assistant Director. His primary concern 
will be business management and property development. Mr. Hartley announced 
to us at the Annual Meeting that the Rev. John C. Grainger had accepted as 
Executive Director. Mr. Grainger and his family have many roots in the Caro- 
lines. They are enthusiastic about the future of Kanuga, and we feel most 
grateful that a man of Mr. Grainger's qualifications is to be our Director. 

During the July meeting of the Board at Kanuga we considered in greater 
depth the program potential. After considering program first the Board then 
made a tour of the property in order to see immediate needs and to relate a 
major building effort to the enlarged program plans. 

As a result of the 1964 summer and fall meetings of the Board a building 
program has been initiated with a completed survey on Kanuga's money raising 
potential. As Mr. Hartley stated in his message to the Annual Meeting, steps 
are being taken now to find the money necessary to support the plan for "creating 
and making new" the life of Kanuga. 

The Bishops of the five owning Dioceses have written a joint letter published 
in an excellent brochure about Kanuga which best expresses any recommendation 
I might make to the women of our Diocese. "The camps and conferences at 
Kanuga are an extension of the Christian Education program of our Dioceses. 
They play a vital role in the life of the Church, providing opportunities for an 
experience in Christian community, for understanding of the relevancy of the 
Gospel and the true mission of the Church. They provide for the laity excellent 
opportunities for leadership training under some of the outstanding leaders in 
our church. 

Kanuga has made, and is making, a very significant contribution to the 
life of the Church throughout this Province and especially here in the Carolinas. 
We are firmly convinced that Kanuga can and will be an even greater influence 
as the program is expanded to meet the demands of our growing Church. 

We are pleased with the substantial progress that has been made in recent 
years toward the improvement of the Kanuga property. We are fully aware, 
however, of the limitations imposed by the condition of certain buildings and 
we are most anxious that all necessary steps be taken to remove these obstacles 
to further development of the Kanuga program. 

It is the sincere desire of each one of us that all of you will share with 
us a thoughtful concern for the future of Kanuga. The work of the Church at 
Kanuga is of vital importance and we earnestly solicit your generous support." 

Mrs. W. Roy Bowen 

Representative to the Kanuga Board

INSTRUCTIONS FOR OFFICERS 

Note: these are the revised instructions for 1965-66. Continue to refer to the 
instructions found in the 1963-64 HANDBOOK of INFORMATION for additional 

information. 

President 

The task of the President is primarily an executive one. She should be 
concerned with the over-all program of the branch and with seeing that the 
duties of each officer are carried out, as well as her own. As coordinator, she 
stands at the center, trying to see that all activities are in the proper proportion 
and relationship to each other, so that a balanced program results. She is the 
leader, who has the responsibility of thinking and planning ahead and then by 
encouragement and example helping to see that talk is translated into action. She 
is the Church's ambassador in the community, representing the women both 
officially and unofficially in many ways. Hers is a large task which requires 
dedication, hard work and much prayer. 

Responsibilities of a Branch President 

In general: 

1. Prepare for leadership by private prayer and meditation and by partici- 
pation in corporate worship. 

2. Consult your rector frequently and also cooperate with the Bishop, Dioce- 
san and District officers. 

3. Know your own constitution thoroughly and that of the diocese. Encourage 
all officers to do the same. 

4. Appoint such committees as necessary locally and act as an ex officio 
member of the same. Check the Diocesan calendar frequently so that 
these committees, especially Finance Committee and Nominating Com- 
mittee may function in time to meet diocesan deadlines. 

5. Read all communications from district and diocese and attend to them 
promptly. 

6. Be as well informed as possible on all phases of the Church's work. 
Especially read the Churchman and the Episcopalian and encourage 
others to do so. 

7. Stress the importance of coordinated planning, so that worship has some 
relation to study and both to giving and service. 

8. See the work of the branch is evaluated once a year, either by the Execu- 
tive Board or the general meeting (in a small branch). The Evaluation 
Aids in this book will be helpful as well as the report forms sent to 
the Diocesan officers. 

9. Know as many members personally as possible and especially see that 
new members are welcomed. 

10. Attend all District meetings, Annual Meeting, Vade Mecum or Kanuga 
if possible and encourage others to attend. 

11. Encourage cooperation in community and interdenomination activities. 

12. Keep necessary records and files and help your successor by passing them 
on and orienting her in other ways so that she may build on what has 
been accomplished. 

59 



To individual officers and committee chairmen: 

1. Know the duties and responsibilities of each officer. 

2. Fill appointive offices with great care, trying to develop new leadership. 

3. Delegate responsibilities and encourage each officer to feel that her duties 
are important, but also try to see tactfully that duties are carried out. 

4. See that each officer passes on her notebook and other information to 
her successor. If possible arrange special orientation or training sessions 
for incoming officers. This may be done at an Executive Board meeting 
(if there is one) or in cooperation with other nearby parishes, if not 

done by the District. 

As Presiding officer: 

1. Call and preside at Executive Board Meetings (if you have one). Have 
a planned agenda but allow sufficient time for all reports and for unex- 
pected business. If you rush through meetings, important material may 
never come before the group. 

2. Preside at all general meetings, with enough parliamentary procedure 
to keep meetings orderly and efficient. 

3. See that important announcements from the President's letter or other 
sources are read or otherwise communicated to the group as a whole. 
Check facts and dates carefully. 

4. Try to see that decisions are group decisions. Teamwork is important. 

5. Express your own conviction that the service of Our Lord is a joy and 
a privilege. Enthusiasm is contagious and your spirit will affect others. 

6. Remember always that the spirit of Christian love in an organization is 
more important than any specific plan or program. 

Responsibilities of a Convocation Chairman 

1. Adapt the general responsibilities of branch presidents to conform to you. 

2. Appoint such committees as are necessary (Nominating and hospitality). 

3. Have at least one Board Meeting a year — preferably before the Fall 
Convocation Meeting. 

4. Plan, with the help of your convocation officers, the fall and spring meet- 
ings. Secure speakers, decide details, etc. 

5. Preside at the Board and Convocation Meetings. 

6. Support your convocation chairmen in their work. 

7. Be ready to help any small branch in your convocation in their program 
planning for the year. 

S. Carry out the wishes of the diocesan president in channeling information 
to your convocation. 



60 



Vice-President 
Diocesan — Convocation — Branch 

The duties of the Vice-President are the same as in any organization. Her 
key word is ASSISTANCE; her motto BE PREPARED. Her responsibilities are: 

1. To preside at any meeting in the absence of the President. 

2. To assist the President when called upon, by representing her at group 
meetings if necessary; or serving as chairman or member of a committee. 

3. To offer help to the President in parish, community and diocesan activities. 

4. Must be ESPECIALLY prepared to preside over a meeting on short 
notice, or take the chair at any time. 

5. To learn the fundamentals of Parliamentary Law if she does not know 

them. 

Note: In some parishes the Vice-President is automatically the President-elect 
or has some other assigned duty. 



Secretary 
Diocesan — Convocation — Branch 

The Recording Secretary is responsible for accurate records of the group. 
Her minutes of the Board and Group meetings are concise records of the business 
transacted, including motions made, the name of the person making the motion, 
that it was seconded and whether carried or defeated. She should also read 
summaries of reports and announcements. Her responsibilities are: 

1. To carry on all necessary correspondence pertaining to the group as di- 
rected by the President. (Some parish groups find it best to have both a 
recording and a corresponding secretary. In that case, correspondence and 
notices are taken care of by the Corresponding Secretary.) 

2. To keep an accurate record of names and addresses of members. 

3. To keep a record of the number of members present at meetings. 

4. To supply Diocesan Year-Book Chairman with accurate lists of names 
and addresses of parish officers and chairmen, and to forward notices of 
changes and replacements during the year. 

5. To keep copies of the Constitution and By-Laws so that she may inform 
the President of time to appoint special committees. 

6. To keep a permanent file of minutes and documents of importance. 

61 



Treasurer 
Diocesan — Convocation — Branch

same. 

All pledge payments should be sent to the Diocesan Treasurer by Dec. 1st

EPIPHANY OFFERING 

Epiphany offering is sent by Branch Treasurer directly to Diocesan Treasurer 
and is disbursed by her as directed by the Annual Meeting. 

SPECIALS 

No Branch can be given credit, in the Treasurer's report appearing in the 
year book, for money expended unless checks are made payable to the Diocesan 
Treasurer. She CANNOT record on her books any check not made payable 
to her as Treasurer. The Branch Treasurer should indicate to whom and for what 
purpose the money is given. The Diocesan Treasurer disburses this money ac- 
cording to direction. 

When sending in money for several items at one time, make out one check 
for the total amount, and mark on the face of the check, or note in an enclosure, 
how much you are sending for each item, accompanied by a personal note if 
desired. 

All checks, for whatever purpose, should be mailed to reach the Diocesan 
Treasurer not later than Dec. 25th. 

EXCEPTIONS

urer.

Convocation Meeting Offering — The Treasurer of the Convocation sends the 
offering to the Diocesan Treasurer together with the Convocation's designation 
of the same. 



DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

To worship God is the first business of every parish and its organizations. 
It is not enough that we do good works, give liberally, study well, or conduct 
our meetings in a good business-like manner. Opening and closing these meetings 

62 



with prayer, if done routinely, will not do. Prayer and worship must be integral, 
vital parts of them, part of their reason for being. Worship must be the central 
act that gives meaning to all other activities of service and fellowship. We 
come together to find inspiration, power, and direction to do not our work, but 
God's work. 

The Devotional Life Secretary is responsible for much of the success of the 
work done by the Episcopal Churchwomen in her parish. She sets the tempo 
for the spiritual awareness of the group. To do this she must constantly seek to 
deepen her own devotional life. She must make her own specific commitments for 
daily periods of prayer and devotional reading. Through this discipline and 
regular whole-hearted participation in corporate worship in church, especially 
the Holy Communion, she will find inspiration, power and guidance.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

I. What and Why — Christian Social Relations 

God so loved the world that He sent His son that men might have life — 
abundant life. Now we are the body of Christ! Christian Action, the incarnation 
(birth into human life) of our love of God, has just one aim — to manifest God's 
love for his children. We worship a God who not only created all things, but 
is creative in history — now; therefore; we seek God's "action" for our time. 
Evolution of concept of loving, from person to person only, to institutions, to 
seeking to change conditions under which men live — all are important. 

II. Christian Education-Worship-Action Interrelated 

ACTION RESULTS FROM TRUE WORSHIP, depends on worship in con- 
scious seeking of God's will and guidance. If we penetrate deeply enough into 
either the Christian life in the world or at the altar, either will drive us to the 
other. 

ACTION RESULTS FROM TRUE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION— depends 
on Christian education to prepare for true (armed with truth) Christian 
action. We cannot bear witness to the love of God to people for whom we do 
not care enough to find out for what they thirst, how they are imprisoned, 
wherewith they shall be clothed in their tomorrows, or from whence shall 
come the means to cure their sickness. 

C.S.R. Chairman — seeks to stimulate, draw attention and inform the whole in 
areas of Christian Action. Some shall contribute particularly in worship, some 
in education, some in action — but all one body. If the CSR Chairman falls down 
in her appointed task — the wholeness of that branch's program is impaired. 

III. How the C.S.R. Chairman Functions 

The CSR Chairman serves with the Chairman of Christian Education and 

others in program planning. 

Large parishes have a committee composed of Chapter CSR Chairmen with 

Branch CSR head, other concerned persons, and short-term "specialists" in 

the community. 

In small parishes, Chairman joins with concerned women from the parish, 

from other churches, and "specialists" in the community. 

This concerned group should meet regularly (monthly?) as a committee to 

study and think about Christian action. The parish priest should always be 

invited to all meetings and consulted concerning any plans. 
Committee action: 

1. Look at own community first; where possible move from particular to 
general as we all are deeply moved by persons, seldom by statistics. 

2. Use materials to stimulate your imagination beyond your own community. 
Study national emphases from CSR Department of the Episcopal Church 
and from the United Church Women. (CSR Bulletin is an absolute must. 
See publication list for this and other materials.) 

3. Discipline yourselves to study that you may be well-informed, once you 
have decided which concerns you are going to zero in on. Use resource 
people in the community, also. 

4. Discipline yourselves to act; decide what is possible for your group, and 
then do it. Don't mistake knowing something or feeling something for 
doing something. Compromise on unimportant details. Relate to others who 
have similar concern, either leading or joining with them. 

66 



5. Infiltrate — lead the women of your branch to study, that you and they may 
be able to: 

a. Speak and act from informed concern in informal groups and social 
gatherings. (The bridge table, the golf course, at home) 

b. "Stand Up in the decision-making areas of life and be counted." 
(Bishop Fraser) 

6. Record — Keep information file for the next chairman. 

7. Evaluate — Base future plans on values observed in past experiences. 

IV. Marks of Christian Social Action 

1. Sit loosely, enthusiasm is for causes, devotion for God. Leave a little crack 
in your armor for new light to shine in. 

2. Say neither "This is the only way" nor "Those who disagree are not 
Christians." 

3. Stick to discussion of issues, not motives or personal traits of those who 
disagree. 

4. Be concerned about means as well as ends. 

5. Love the "enemy" (those on the other side of the issues) and be concerned 
for them, too. 

6. Refer to education and worship — Section II 

7. Whenever possible, do something vuith people rather than for them. 

V. Suggested Areas of Concern to Consider 

Providing a community for mobile people without qualifications of money,

MISSIONS 

The purpose of this department is to encourage active participation by our 
Churchwomen in the mission of the Church, by: 

1. Praying daily, mentioning each one of our missionaries by name. Use the 
prayer manual "Far and Near". 

2. Try to have at least one mission program a year for your Branch 
meeting. Give news of where the missionaries are and what they are doing. 
Have a map of the world, and show where they are located. 

3. Write to the missionaries, especially at Christmas, Easter, and on their 
birthdays, giving news of the Diocese. 

4. Try to see that your Branch budget is divided 50% inside the parish, 
and 50% outside. Try to give to Missions through the Diocesan pledge so that 
the money can be sent out "in force" through recommended projects that have been 
given first priority. 

5. The missionary Christmas gift is an extra and is to be sent by November 
15th to the Convocation Mission Secretary, who sends the total amount from 
all the Branches of her Convocation to the Diocesan Treasurer by December 
first. The total of all the money collected is divided equally among all the active 
and retired missionaries listed on the assignment sheet. Please be sure the Branch 
Treasurer knows she is to send the check to the Convocation Secretary of Missions 
and not to the Diocesan one. 

6. Send all other monetary gifts for missionaries or missions, domestic or 
overseas, directly from the Branch to the Diocesan Churchwomen's Treasurer 
made payable to her with instructions as to allocation of said checks. If it is 
going overseas, please enclose the amount of postage needed.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

The United Thank Offering is an offering of grateful Churchwomen every- 
where — a three-fold gift of prayer, gifts and joyful service. It is a gift, over and 
above your regular contribution to your Churchwomen's group, given in thanks- 
giving for all God's gifts so freely bestowed — life, health, safety; all God's 
beauty in the world about us, strength in sorrow and the means of grace to 
meet each day. 

At home and overseas, the offering from our Blue Boxes goes to provide 
medical care, to feed and clothe the needy, to teach children in Christian Schools, 
to build new buildings and repair old ones, to provide equipment and supplies, 
and greatest of all, to bring the gift of Christ and His love to the spiritually 
starved. 

There is an old prayer which says, "We thank Thee for the gift of Thy 
dear Son, our Lord. Grant that we, who have received Him in our hearts, may 
joyfully go forth with Him on many errands." Our Blue Box, used prayerfully 
and often, takes us on His errands to strange and far places, where the need 
is great and where we can never go ourselves. You, as a United Thank Offering 
Treasurer, have the opportunity to spread information about this great privilege 
of Episcopal Churchwomen. 



Responsibilities of The United Thank Offering Treasurer 

BRANCH: 

1. Be sure every woman in your Parish has a Blue Box. Keep U.T.O. foremost 
in the minds of all members through leaflets, programs and announcements 
of interest. You may get envelopes or Blue Boxes from your Convocation 
U.T.O. Treasurer. 

2. Arrange with your Rector for the Ingatherings and publicize the time and 
date. It is the custom to have our Ingatherings twice a year, October 18th, 
St. Luke's Day and March 25th, Feast of the Annunciation. A Corporate 
Service of Holy Communion is traditional for these. However, the service 
need not be held on the specific date. Many churches have their Ingathering 
at a regular Sunday Service in order that more people may become aware 
of it. 

3. Arrange some alternate way in which people who cannot attend the Ingather- 
ing can get their offering to you, but stress attendance as an active and vital 
part of the offering. The aim and goal should be for an increased participa- 
tion, as well as the amount received. 

4. Please be sure that your Branch Offering reaches your Convocation U.T.O. 
Treasurer as soon as possible; one check made out to her along with the 
number of envelopes distributed, the number returned, and the number at 
the Ingathering Service. 

CONVOCATION: 

1. Keep accurate record of the Offerings from each Branch and send a copy 
to DIOCESAN U.T.O. TREASURER with one check covering the total 
offering from your Convocation. 

2. Notify Branches of dates of Ingathering and give deadline for sending 
check to you. 

72 



3. Make yourself known to all Branch U.T.O. Treasurers in your Convocation 
and let them know you are available to help them. 

DIOCESAN: 

1. Send a letter in late August to the Parish and Convocation U.T.O. Treasurers 
with instructions for Fall Ingathering. As soon as all reports are in, send a 
check to Mr. Lindsey M. Franklin, Jr., Executive Council, 815 Second Avenue, 
New York 17, N. Y., for the total amount. 

2. In February, send a letter as above and a check as soon as all reports are in. 

3. Keep accurate records of Offering from each Parish and Convocation. 

4. Type report of amount of Offering from each Parish for Yearbook in March, 
after calendar year has been closed. 

5. Write report for Annual Meeting and for Yearbook. 

6. Make arrangements before Annual Meeting for the Offering to be taken at 
the Communion Service at Annual Meeting — this being the Ingathering for 
the Diocese. The Convocation U.T.O. Treasurers or their representatives 
are asked to do this. Give them a slip of paper with the total amount from 
their Convocation for the year, which they present with the Offering. 



THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Diocesan Alms Basin 

The idea of the women of the Diocese of North Carolina donating their 
old pieces of gold and silver in order that we might have our own Diocesan 
United Thank Offering Alms Basin was presented to the Executive Board of the 
Woman's Auxiliary by Mrs. B. W. Roberts of St. Phillip's Church, Durham. A 
committee was appointed in 1953 to bring about the successful completion of this 
project. This committee consisted of Mrs. William L. Steele of Raleigh, as chair- 
man, Mrs. U. T. Holmes of Chapel Hill, Mrs. Brown Patterson of Greensboro 
and The Right Reverend Edwin Anderson Penick, Bishop of the Diocese of 
North Carolina. 

Parish U.T.O. Custodians collected cherished momentos of silver and gold 
and these were sent through the District Custodians to Mrs. Steele. Finally 5 
barrels and 2 boxes of metal (silver and gold) were collected from women all 
over the Diocese, and these were shipped to Mrs. Louis F. Glasier of New York 
who designed and made the Alms Basin. The Basin is centered with the seal 
of the Diocese executed in gold from the wedding rings, crosses, pins, etc. that 
were donated. Around the edge of the Basin are the words "Accept, O Lord, from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering". 

The Alms Basin was completed and dedicated to the Glory of God by Bishop 
Penick at the Early Celebration of Holy Communion at the Woman's Auxiliary 
Annual Meeting, April 20, 1955, at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina. 

The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to the parishes of the Diocese for use 
at their Spring and Fall United Thank Offering Ingatherings, and may be 
obtained by contacting the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer.

COLLEGE WORK AND 
CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

The function of Personnel should be to educate and keep before the women of 
the church the need and opportunities for women workers in church vocations. 
(Recruiting — Training — Placement). To develop scholarship funds; to help young 
people take part in summer work projects. 

The function of College Work is to help college students and faculty continue 
to be the church where they are. There are many and varied suggested ways of 
participating in this important mission of our church — we list some. 



BRANCH COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN 
MINISTRIES CHAIRMAN 

SHOULD: 

1. Be thoroughly informed on types of professions, work, needs, qualifications, 
training etc. offered by the church. 

2. Be responsible to have one program on this subject each year. Work with the 
Rector seeing if the need for women workers (and men) can be presented 
once a year to young people in parish and church school. When your Rector 
preaches on the ministry, ask him to also present church work as a vocation 
for women. 

75 



3. Place recruiting materials and training school pamphlets in your tract rack.

young people and womens groups. 

Remember what is said of the Priesthood and Church Vocations in the home 
is probably ten times as telling as what we teach in the church school and from 
the pulpit.

SUPPLY WORK 

Supply work, the oldest organized project of the women of the Church, is in 
a period of change — on national, diocesan and parish levels — in response to the 
needs of a rapidly changing world. But always it has remained true to its 
original purpose — to supply the kind of material goods which are a woman's 
concern and responsibility for her own family. 

The General Division of Women's Work has for the past two years been 
making a complete and detailed study of Supply Work. The conclusions are 
summarized as follows: 

There are areas where the need for Supply Work (material goods) is 
diminishing and the need for Specials (cash gifts to missions) is increasing. 
Sending of free medical supplies, as closest to the original purpose of Supply 
Work, continues through Interchurch Medical Assistance and supply Departments 
may be asked for cash assignments to cover processing charges. The proposal 
to combine Supply Work and the Specials (cash contributions) of the Home and 
Overseas Departments was not considered feasible at this time, though many 
dioceses combine Supply and Missions Chairmen. However, it was recommended 
that Supply Departments cooperate with Missions Chairmen to personalize mis- 
sions and to contribute to a greater understanding of the mission field. In addition 
Miss Anne Kremer, National Supply Secretary, stressed that we must learn 
to work with the victims of suffering — and not just for them. She says: "Though 
Supply Work is nb more than a drop in the bucket in relation to the problems of 
poverty, alienation, and suffering that afflict our world it can be valuable ... in 
so far as all those involved in it are aware of the importance of working in a 
relationship . . . what we are truly dealing with are not just clothes and money 
but human relationships". 

The Diocesan Supply Chairman will continue to accept cash assignments to 
missions institutions and a sewing assignment which will be distributed to such 
branches as wish to sew. In addition it will continue to promote the United Cloth- 
ing appeal and supply branches not receiving a national Supply assignment with 
ready cut garments for sewing from Church World Service (New Windsor, 
Maryland) if they wish them. She will work closely with the Secretary of 
Missions in promoting understanding of the mission field and the kind of personal 
human relationships which are so vitally necessary. 

Convocation The Convocation Supply Secretary is the link between the Parish 
Church and the Diocesan Secretary. It is her duty to distribute the sewing 
allotments and to be sure they are completed and reported to her and to the 
Diocesan Supply Secretary. She promotes the Episcopal church's art in the United 
Clothing appeal. She contacts the United Churchwomen in her district and 
announces places and times for the ingatherings of clothes to be sent overseas 
through Church World Service. (In large towns one church frequently has storage 
space where these garments are kept until a truck from C.W.S. picks them up.) 
The Convocation Supply Chairman helps the Parish Supply representative with 
information, programs, etc. 

Parish It is the duty of the Parish Supply Secretary to: 

1. Make arrangements for the Spring and Fall ingathering of good used 
clothing. 

2. Furnish Thompson Orphanage in Charlotte, Tuttle Community Center in 
Raleigh and Church World Service Center, New Windsor, Maryland 
with good used clothing. 

3. Organize the sewing program (if her church participates). Any church 
can order, at its own expense, direct from C.W.S. — or accept the Diocesan 
Secretary's choice. 

4. See that the articles sewed are pressed, packed and shipped. 

5. Send reports concerning Supply work to both the Convocation and Diocesan 
Supply Secretaries as well as her Parish president. 

78 



6. To present a program on Supply work to her Episcopal Churchwomen's 
group if asked to do so. 

7. Try to enter into a friendly relationship with the recipient of these gifts to 
learn something of the mission or institution receiving them. 

This may lead to an investigation of The Church's work in some particular 
area. Supply work is not to be considered a thing apart from Missionary work 
but as one of the ways we help support it. 

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The PURPOSE of the Church Periodical Club is to provide reading material 
for those who could not otherwise obtain it. It is the only organization of the 
Episcopal Church devoted solely to the ministry of the printed word. 

Wherever the church is at work, in your community, in this country and 
overseas, the CPC sends reading material, all without charge. The money to 
carry on this ministry comes from gifts to the CPC National Books Fund. Requests 
for books come to the CPC from every continent in the world, and are filled 
as far as your gifts ivill permit. 

The printed word is one of the most powerful weapons the Christian may 
use. It has been said, "If we did not have a Church Periodical Club, we would 
surely have to create one". 

In our diocese CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, headed 
by a diocesan Director of the CPC, and carried out by CPC Secretaries in the 
branches and the convocations. 

Suggested Procedure for CPC Secretaries 

(1) To Promote the CPC in the Branch: 

Obtain the records from your predecessor in office. 

Learn the purpose of the CPC. Study the CPC Handbook. 

Keep a supply of CPC literature on hand. Distribute it at every chance. 

Help to keep your parish library and tract rack adequately supplied. 

Plan a CPC program each year. Make it simple but inclusive of all phases 

of the work. 

Solicit your Rector's help for the CPC. 

Find people and places in your community to distribute appropriate reading 

material to: viz.; mission churches nearby, school libraries, low income 

families, mental hospitals, nursing homes, jails, etc. 

Keep a record of the work you do, and the money you send to the National 

Books Fund. This will help when you fill out your Annual Report blank. 
VERY IMPORTANT: Send all checks to the Diocesan Director. (NOT to 
the diocesan treasurer). The Director is required to keep books on each 
Branch. 

(2) To Promote Gifts to the National Book Fund: 

Try to get the CPC in your Branch Budget each year. 

Memorial Gifts. Present the idea of sending a personal check to the Books 

Fund as a memorial. Send check to Director, so your branch will get credit, 

and Director can write and acknowledgement to the family. 

Coin Card. This little dime folder produces amazing results. Take some coin 

cards to meetings, and point out how dimes can BUY A BOOK. 

Sell Magazine Subscriptions. Profit to go to the Books Fund. 

Bazaars. Remember the Books Fund when the time comes to decide the 

disposition of your bazaar money. 

Share your ideas. New ways are forever being found by individuals and 

groups with imagination. Write the Director about your projects to earn 

money for the Books Fund. Other branches will be glad to learn about them.

PRAYERS 



GUIDANCE 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further 
us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtain ever- 
lasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee so to reveal Thy 
love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and 
people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church 
in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer 
abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled 
with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives with- 
out love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have 
blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have 
lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars 
of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in 
our souls, that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, 
our wills keen, our hands quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers into 
Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard and guide 
the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept 
from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, and gifts, and joyful 
service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them 



with Thy children in all the world ; for his sake whose life and death and rising 
to life again were a song of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and 
the Life ; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of 
Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the 
glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and the 

strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy 
heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 

We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. 
May we remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless 
teachers, students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that 
we may find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church 
work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that 
they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the 
saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray 
Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and 
labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark 
places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace stablish Thy Church in 
the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us 
light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. 
Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President 
shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I 

present to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 



RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and 
power. Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt 
their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until 
they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to dis- 
charge the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular at- 
tendance at the Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His 
purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's 
kingdom in this parish and beyond? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high 
sense of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency 
and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentle- 
ness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they 
daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels 
of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the Diocese. 
Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be 
upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask 
the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance 
of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech 
Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special 
work for which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in 
the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for 
service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be 
with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Eighty -fourth Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



ST. LUKE'S CHURCH 

Salisbury, North Carolina 
April 19, 20, 1966 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Annual Meeting 1966 

Bishop Fraser, Reverend Clergy, Delegates, and Guests: 

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Eighty-Fourth Annual 
Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina. This 
is indeed a memorable occasion in that we are meeting here at St. Luke's 
Church for the first time in twenty-six years. Also, because this is our first meeting 
since Bishop Fraser's installation as the eighth Bishop of the Diocese. So to our 
host parish and rector, I express grateful appreciation for inviting us here; and 
to Bishop Fraser, I reiterate the sentiment of the resolution adopted at our last 
Annual Meeting, pledging him our wholehearted support, loyalty, and cooperation. 

As we begin this meeting, perhaps it is well to be reminded that basically 
the purpose of the Episcopal Churchwomen is no different from the purpose of 
the Church. Ours is simply an enabling organization within the Church, pro- 
viding further opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and 
service. 

As the scope of national, diocesan, and parish programs becomes broad- 
ened and more and more women are integrated into the total life of the 
Church, overlapping and duplication of work become increasingly evident. Hence 
we are reading and hearing about many interesting experiments going on within 
the organization. Some are combining the activities of the men and women, others 
have dissolved altogether. 

Who knows but that our organization is destined to disappear? Certainly we 
must be mindful of the changes taking place and keep a critical eye on our 
organization lest its purpose and program become irrelevant to the true purpose 
for which it exists. To this end, your Executive Board has begun a critical exam- 
ination and evaluation of our organizational structure and our participation in 
the life of the Church. We need your suggestions and criticisms. 

Rather than give you a lot of figures which you will hear later, I am going 
to give you just three round-number summary figures. According to the 1965 
records, 100 branches with a membership of 6200 members contributed through 
pledges, special project funds, specials, United Thank Offering, and Church 
Periodical Fund a grand total of $78,500. This figure is exclusive of the sums 
spent within the parishes for which we have no record. My reason for giving 
you this figure is to introduce the theme for this Annual Meeting — "Far and 
Near". 

Some years ago when I was your Diocesan Treasurer, I received a thank-you 
note from one of our affiliated missionaries, thanking the Churchwomen for a 
Christmas gift check. She said, "You all through your gift will perhaps touch 
many whom you will never know personally." 

Budgets and figures then became alive for me. Consequently, this gift of 
$78,500 comes alive. It represents you, the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina, ministering to others through many channels. On one 
hand, there are 6200 dedicated churchwomen going that extra-mile to minister to 
people either directly or indirectly. On the other hand, there are innumerable 
people whose lives are being touched in one way or another through ministries 
supported in part by this gift. 

11 



Needless to say, this gift of $78,500 by no means denotes the total ministry 
of the churchwomen. You have been engaged in countless services and deeds of 
kindness which quite properly belong in this category. My only intent is to point 
out that our ministry, whatever it may be, is to people. 

During this day and a half together let us think about people- "Far and 
Near" — People in the diocese, the province, the nation, and the world. Let 
us give thanks for the privilege of ministering even in small ways to many 
people. Lest we become proud, boastful, or complacent, let us examine our re- 
sponse to our opportunities in the light of God's gifts to us. Then let us pray 
more fervently, labor more diligently, and give more liberally of our time, our 
talents, and our tithes that our response to the demands God is placing upon us 
may become more acceptable to Him. 

"Far and Near" — People — People — People. 
Thanksgiving — Response — Challenge. 

Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson 
President

Mrs. Francis O. Clarkson, Chairman of the Resolutions Committee, called on 
Mrs- Norris L. Hodgkins who read the following tribute to the late Right Reverend 
Bravid Washington Harris: 

16 



IN MEMORIAM 
BRAVID WASHINGTON HARRIS 

We pause to pay a richly deserved tribute to the memory of one of our 
outstanding missionary bishops, The Right Reverend Bravid Washington 
Harris, who for nineteen years was Bishop of Liberia. He had a fatal heart 
attack while driving his car in Virginia, on October 21, 1965. Bishop Harris 
had a career of vigor and forcefulness, was a dynamic leader and speaker, 
and held the respect and admiration of all who knew him. I regret not hav- 
ing known him personally, but enjoyed our contacts through letters. 

Bishop Harris was born in Warrenton, N. C, was educated at Saint 
Augustine's College and the Bishop Payne Divinity School- For twenty years 
he was rector of Grace Church, Norfolk, Virginia, and then for two years 
was in charge of Negro work in the Home Department of the National Coun- 
cil of the Episcopal Church. After being elected Bishop of Liberia, his primary 
task became the enlistment and training of an African leadership for the 
Church and State. He revived Cuttington College in Liberia. Today it is 
recognized as the best institution of higher learning in West Africa and has 
the only graduate divinity school in West Africa. 

Bishop Harris' funeral service was held at the Cathedral Church of Saint 
Peter and Saint Paul in Washington, D. C Present at the service and later 
at the interment at Arlington Cemetery was a delegation from Liberia. 

In an unprecedented tribute to Bishop Harris, the President of Liberia 
ordered all schools, businesses and offices throughout the country of Liberia 
closed, and the Republic's flag flown at half-mast on the day of the funeral. 
He also ordered all Churches in the country to toll their bells for 2+ hours. 

Madame President, in its Annual Meeting of 1966 the Churchwomen of 
the Diocese of North Carolina would pay tribute to this devoted and valued 
leader of the Church. 

Mrs- Clarkson then presented the following resolution memorializing Miss 
Emma Joy Hall : 



IN MEMORIAM 
EMMA JOY HALL 
Born: July 27, 1867, London, England 
Died: May 28, 1965, Charlotte, North Carolina 
Faithful communicant of Saint Peter's Episcopal Church, Charlotte 

In the work of the Episcopal Churchwomen, a leader in her parish branch, 
a past president of the Diocese of North Carolina and for six years a member 
of the National Executive Board, representing the Daughters of the King. 

In her community, Treasurer of the Good Samaritan Hospital for many 
years and on its Board of Managers, as well as on the Board of Memorial 
Hospital since its founding. 

A friend to many, but especially to those serving the Church in distant 
places, whom she remembered in constant prayers and in frequent corre- 
spondence. 

Thanks be to God for this choice vessel of His grace. May she go from 
strength to strength in the life of perfect service in His Heavenly Kingdom. 

17 



The Annual Meeting sanctioned these resolutions unanimously by rising and 
standing in silent tribute to these great souls. Copies will be sent to the respective 
families- 

The President announced that the Provincial Synod will meet, June 7-9, 
Sewanee, Tennessee- The following officers are Deputies, ex officio, by virtue of 
office: The President, Mrs. Sterling A- Stoudemire, Mrs. Eugene S. Knight, Mrs. 
Gilbert Ross, Mrs. John Clayton Smith, and Mrs. Lewis B. Scruggs- Alternates 
will be appointed for any Deputy who may not be able to attend. 

The President announced the following conference dates: Vade Mecum, June 
13-17; Sewanee Summer Training School, June 9-12; and Kanuga Adult Confer- 
ence, July 2-15. She introduced Mrs. Leland G. Swart of St. Andrew's Church, 
Greensboro, who presented plans for the Vade Mecum Conference, which will be 
led by The Right Reverend C. Gresham Marmion, Bishop of Kentucky. 

The President stated that an article entitled the "Flying Blue Box Soon To 
Be No More," appearing in the March issue of The Alaskan Churchman, had 
aroused some question among the Churchwomen relative to the United Thank 
Offering grants. She asked Mrs. W- J. Gordon, mother of the Bishop of Alaska, 
to speak to the issue first. Mrs. Gordon responded by explaining that the Bishop 
wanted a token gift toward the purchase of a new plane in order that the associa- 
tion with the United Thank Offering and the name "Blue Box" might be continued. 
His request was denied. Mrs. Ernest E. Rucker, Associate Secretary, United Thank 
Offering, General Division of Women's Work, who was attending the Annual 
Meeting, explained that the United Thank Offering Committee had $400,000 to 
allocate with requests for over $5,000,000. Other requests took precedence over the 
"Blue Box." Furthermore, the Committee does not make token grants and there is 
a good possibility that funds for the plane might be available through the Over- 
seas Department. Mrs- James L. Godfrey, Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Jr., Mrs. Francis 
O. Clarkson, Mrs. John D. Elliot, and Mrs. John Clayton Smith spoke to the issue; 
after which Mrs. Charles H. Kahn presented and moved for adoption the follow- 
ing resolution: 

RESOLVED, That we express our love and thankfulness to Bishop Gordon 
for all that he has done and will continue to do and express our wish to re- 
main a part of his work. At the same time we ask that the Overseas Depart- 
ment consider assuming the expense of his plane and that it continue to be 
called "The Blue Box." 

The motion was seconded and carried. 

After the singing of Hymn 538, The Reverend William E. Pilcher, III, led the 
Noon Day Prayers. 

The Report of the Credentials Committee was presented by Mrs. Lewis B. 
Scruggs, Chairman, as follows: 

Number of Branches entitled to vote 100 

Number of Delegates entitled to vote 250 

Number of Executive Board entitled to vote 23

TOTAL NUMBER PRESENT 245 

Mrs. Scruggs announced that the offering for the Bishop's Discretionary Fund 
taken at the evening service amounted to $195.32- 

Mrs. Oliver Roddey, United Thank Offering Treasurer, prefaced her report 
with the announcement that the amount of the offering taken at the morning ser- 
vice was $169.09, the largest ever. She pointed out that over half of the missionary 
work of the Episcopal Church is made possible by the United Thank Offering. The 
total offering in the Diocese in 1965 amounted to $27,695-83, a gain of $650 over 
the preceding year. 

Mrs. Roddey presented Mrs. Ernest E- Rucker, our guest speaker who was in- 
troduced earlier. Mrs- Rucker gave a very informative and stimulating address on 
"The United Thank Offering — Far and Near." 

Mrs. W- B. Elsee, Chairman of the Courtesy Committee, made the following 
report which was accepted unanimously: 

"Hats off to the folks at St. Luke's in Salisbury 
They've done everything here to make our stay merry 
From holes in the donuts to coffee delicious 
To meals that were lovely and oh so nutritious 
Exhibits — transportation, they had it down pat 
The 84th. Session thanks them for that! 

Hats off, too, to Vertie and her excellent Board 
For planning a meeting we've really adored 
The reports were all timely, interesting, and such 
The business seemed vital (and there wasn't too much) 
We'll leave here inspired, chock full of facts under hat 
The 84th. Session thanks them for all that! 

Hats off, once more, to the dignitaries who're here 

Outstanding speakers who have come from far and near 

To brief us on what can be done with our funds 

For migrants, prisoners, missions, hospitals, all our institutions 

For spelling out the needs and the parts we must play 

The 84th. Session thanks those speakers today!" 

Mrs. Ruffin Bailey of The Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, invited 
everyone to attend the 1967 Annual Meeting to be held there. 

Mrs- Jackson expressed grateful appreciation for the contributions made by 
the out-going members of the Executive Board ; namely, Mrs. William P. Price, 
Secretary of Christian Social Relations; Mrs. Norris L. Hodgkins, Secretary of 
Missions; Mrs. Julian Robertson and Mrs. John W. Drake, Convocation Chairmen; 
Mrs. M- E. Motsinger, Jr., Representative on the Diocesan Council and Mrs. 
Sterling A- Stoudemire, a Convocation Chairman, who will continue to serve in 
other capacities. She thanked all who helped make the Annual Meeting a 
memorable occasion. 

After the Prayer of General Thanksgiving and the Bishop's Blessing, the 
Eighty-fourth Annual Meeting adjourned- 

Mrs. Prezell R. Robinson 
Secretary

SYDNEY H. SHAW 

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT 

ROCKY MOUNT, N. C. 

Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

I have examined the Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1965, and the related state- 
ment of Changes in Fund Balances for the year ended that date. The examination 
was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accord- 
ingly included such tests of the accounting records and other procedures as were 
deemed appropriate in the circumstances. 

In my opinion, the accompanying Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1965, and the related 
Statements of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended present fairly 
the recorded cash receipts and disbursements for the year ended December 31, 
1965, and the resulting fund balances at that date, in conformity with generally 
accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the pre- 
ceding year.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female 
Missionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1871 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Wo- 
man's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise 
money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council 
was set up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary 
only to the Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." 
This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just 
an auxiliary to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Wo- 
men's Work, the executive body on the national level, representing all of the work 
of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Church- 
women" as the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of 
Church", as the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back 
to 1881 when the Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The 
Rt. Rev- Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of 
Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 
1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches 
with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one 
of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was 
adopted changing the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina". It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches 
be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen of Parish".

PURPOSE AND PROGRAM 

The general purpose of the Episcopal Churchwomen is really no different 
from the purpose of the Church — namely, to be the Body of Christ in the world, 
to worship Him and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 

Episcopal Churchwomen is simply an organization within the Church pro- 
viding additional opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and 
service. It enables churchwomen to be informed about the total program of the 
Church; to participate more fully in carrying out the program of the Church; and 
to pioneer in new and creative forms of ministry. 

Churchwomen have been pioneers in mission and ministry. To quote from 
the Committee on Mutual Responsibility: "The women of the Church, especially 
through the United Thank Offering, have long anticipated the concept of Mutual 
Responsibility." 

Episcopal Churchwomen must continue a program of worship, study, fellow- 
ship, and action with renewed zeal, enthusiasm, and joy. We must respond to the 
challenge to new and creative forms of ministry — ever seeking new and creative 
ways to deepen our commitment to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master, to serve 
Him obediently, and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 

PURPOSE 1964-1967 TRIENNIUM 

To help the Women of the Church: 

RECOGNIZE how God is working in His changing world of today; 

UNDERSTAND the roles and opportunities of Women in the Church and so- 
ciety; and 

LEARN TO RESPOND to the demands which God is placing upon us.

as a Branch and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is 
composed of communicants who choose to be active members. The structure should 
be simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 
The officers should correspond as nearly as possible to the Diocesan officers. 

The Executive Board consists of the elected officers, committee chairmen, 
chapter chairmen, and any member of the Executive Council, General Division of 
Women's Work, Provincial Representatives, or Diocesan Executive Board who is 
a communicant of the parish, and the rector. The Board, under the guidance of 
the president, should plan, promote, direct, and evaluate the work of the Branch. 
Plans of the Executive Board should always be approved by the entire group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as 
Chapters. The Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

42 



DEVOTIONAL LIFE 

Mrs. W. D. Holloman, Jr., Secretary 
1110 Church Street, Scotland Neck 

The Secretary of Devotional Life will serve more effectively if she recognizes 
that one of her first responsibilities is to deepen and strengthen her own personal 
commitment to God through a discipline of private prayer and study and public 
worship. Of primary importance, too, is an early consultation with her rector 
that they may work out together any plans and programs for tthe spiritual enrich- 
ment of the Churchwomen. No special program should be initiated; no prayer or 
study groups started without his approval. Call on Diocesan and Convocation Sec- 
retaries as needed. 



SUGGESTED AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY 

1. Ask to serve on the Executive Board for over-all planning. Correlate plans 
with President, Secretaries of Christian Education and Missions, and United Thank 
Offering Custodian. 

2. Plan devotions for general and executive meetings. 

3. Work with Chapter Devotional Life Leaders in planning for chapter meet- 
ings and to consider the needs of your churchwomen. 

4- Plan for corporate communions for special days and groups. 

5. Plan Quiet Days on the parish level. 

6. Be alert for special needs and special prayers and take them to your rector. 

7. Help form Prayer Groups and Bible Study Groups. If your rector ap- 
proves there are women in the diocese experienced in this area who will be happy 
to work with you. 

8. Assemble a bookshelf and track rack of devotional material. Keep up to 
date with new materials. Reading is essential to spiritual growth. 

9. Practice and actively encourage the habit of private devotions and family 
prayer. 

10. Try to reach women not reached through regular meetings of Church- 
women. 



TECHNIQUES IN PREPARING AND LEADING DEVOTIONS 

1. Allow plenty of time to prepare devotions for meetings. Thought and 
quality are much more important than duration of presentation. 

2. Start with silent prayer. This silence could be preceded by a line from a 
Psalm or by one of the Opening Sentences from Morning or Evening Prayer. 

3. Have devotions pertinent to program and/or special need. 

4. Do not become stereotyped. Remember that the material and methods to 
be used are limited only by your imagination. Do not be afraid to use informality 
and contemporary language. 

5- Enlist attention and group participation by means of litanies, prayers in 
unison, and by having others to take the service or to assist.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. Don Blanton, Secretary 
Country Club Drive, Lexington 

I. What and Why — Christian Social Relations 

God so loved the world that He sent His son that men might have life — 
abundant life. Now we are the body of Christ! Christian Action, the incarnation 
(birth into human life) of our love of God, has just one aim — to manifest God's 
love for his children. We worship a God who not only created all things, but 
is creative in history — now; therefore; we seek God's "action" for our time. 
Evolution of concept of loving, from person to person only, to institutions, to 
seeking to change conditions under which men live — all are important. 

II. Christian Education- Worship-Action Interrelated 

ACTION RESULTS FROM TRUE WORSHIP, depends on worship in con- 
scious seeking of God's will and guidance. If we penetrate deeply enough into 
either the Christian life in the world or at the altar, either will drive us to the 
other. 

ACTION RESULTS FROM TRUE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION— depends 
on Christian education to prepare for true (armed with truth) Christian 
action. We cannot bear witness to the love of God to people for whom we do 
not care enough to find out for what they thirst, how they are imprisoned, 
wherewith they shall be clothed in their tomorrows, or from whence shall 
come the means to cure their sickness. 

C.S.R. Chairman — seeks to stimulate, draw attention and inform the whole in 
areas of Christian Action. Some shall contribute particularly in worship, some 
in education, some in action — but all one body. If the CSR Chairman falls down 
in her appointed task — the wholeness of that branch's program is impaired. 

III. How the C.S.R. Chairman Functions 

The CSR Chairman serves with the Chairman of Christian Education and 

others in program planning. 

Large parishes have a committee composed of Chapter CSR Chairmen with 

Branch CSR head, other concerned persons, and short-term "specialists" in 

the community. 

In small parishes, Chairman joins with concerned women from the parish, 

from other churches, and "specialists" in the community. 

This concerned group should meet regularly (monthly?) as a committee to 

study and think about Christian action. The parish priest should always be 

invited to all meetings and consulted concerning any plans. 

Committee action: 

1. Look at own community first; where possible move from particular to 
general as we all are deeply moved by persons, seldom by statistics. 

2. Use materials to stimulate your imagination beyond your own community. 
Study national emphases from CSR Department of the Episcopal Church 
and from the United Church Women. {CSR Bulletin is an absolute must. 
See publication list for this and other materials.) 

3. Discipline yourselves to study that you may be well-informed, once you 
have decided which concerns you are going to zero in on. Use resource 
people in the community, also. 

4. Discipline yourselves to act; decide what is possible for your group, and 
then do it. Don't mistake knowing something or feeling something for 
doing something. Compromise on unimportant details. Relate to others who 
have similar concern, either leading or joining with them. 

48 



5. Infiltrate — lead the women of your brand of study, that you and they may 
be able to: 

a. Speak and act from informed concern in informal groups and social 
gatherings. (The bridge table, the golf course, at home) 

b. "Stand Up in the decision-making areas of life and be counted." 
(Bishop Fraser) 

6. Record — Keep information file for the next chairman. 

7. Evaluate — Base future plans on values observed in past experiences. 

IV. Marks of Christian Social Action 

1. Sit loosely, enthusiasm is for causes, devotion for God. Leave a little crack 
in your armor for new light to shine in. 

2. Say neither "This is the only way" nor "Those who disagree are not 
Christians." 

3. Stick to discussion of issues, not motives or personal traits of those who 
disagree. 

4. Be concerned about means as well as ends. 

5. Love the "enemy" (those on the other side of the issues) and be concerned 
for them, too. 

6. Refer to education and worship — Section II 

7. Whenever possible, do something with people rather than for them. 

V. Suggested Areas of Concern to Consider 

Providing a community for mobile people without qualifications of money, 

position, education, etc. 
Care for ageing — health, welfare, and visiting. 
Homemaker Service — for ageing and homes where mother must be away 

because of illness, or new baby, etc. 
Pre-school children — Day Care Centers — Cultural enrichment programs 
Anti-poverty Program — Economic Opportunity Act 
Relation to National Council of Churches and United Churchwomen (See 

N. C. Churchman, Report on N.C.C., February, 1965) 
Legislation — "Maybe the law cannot change the heart, but it can restrain the 

heartless; perhaps it cannot legislate morals, but it can regulate behavior." 

(Martin Luther King) 
Alcoholism and the use of alcohol 

Literacy programs — Tutoring and study hall projects — dropouts 
(The work of the United Church Women, the migrants, Presiding Bishop's 

Fund for World Relief, United Clothing Appeal and foreign students are 

others which are still very much on our list of concerns.)

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Sterling Stoudemire, Secretary 
712 Gimghoul Road, Chapel Hill 

The purpose of this department is to encourage active participation by our 
Churchwomen in the mission of the Church, by: 

1. Praying daily, mentioning each one of our missionaries by name. Use the 
prayer manual "Far and Near". 

2. Try to have at least one mission program a year for your Branch 
meeting. Give news of where the missionaries are and what they are doing. 
Have a map of the world, and show where they are located. 

3. Write to the missionaries, especially at Christmas, Easter, and on their 
birthdays, giving news of the Diocese. 

4. Try to see that your Branch budget is divided 50% inside the parish, 
and 50% outside. Try to give to Missions through the Diocesan pledge so that 
the money can be sent out "in force" through recommended projects that have been 
given first priority. 

5. The missionary Christmas gift is an extra and is to be sent by November 
15th to the Convocation Mission Secretary, who sends the total amount from 
all the Branches of her Convocation to the Diocesan Treasurer by December 
first. The total of all the money collected is divided equally among all the active 
and retired missionaries listed on the assignment sheet. Please be sure the Branch 
Treasurer knows she is to send the check to the Convocation Secretary of Missions 
and not to the Diocesan one. 

6. Send all other monetary gifts for missionaries or missions, domestic or 
overseas, directly from the Branch to the Diocesan Churchwomen's Treasurer 
made payable to her with instructions as to allocation of said checks. If it is 
going overseas, please enclose the amount of postage needed.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. Oliver Roddey 
811 Queens Road, Charlotte 

The United Thank Offering is the offering that goes the second mile. It is 
over and above our regular pledges. We give from a thankful heart, with a 
prayer to God that He will accept our gift of love and use it for all men 
everywhere. 

The Blue Box is a vehicle of prayer and it is the woman's individual alms 
basin. It should be kept in a prominent place where we can add a prayer — if not 
a coin — to it each day. Isn't it amazing how God can take our nickels, dimes, and 
our prayers and make such wonderful things out of them such as hospitals, schools, 
missions, training centers for missionaries, provide help for the migrant workers, 
retarded children, juvenile delinquents and give aid to many other needy peoples 
and causes. 

"We can not all go to the mission field but our offerings and our prayers can 
go for us. They become instruments of a part that we can play in Mutual Re- 
sponsibility and Interdependence — a box, a coin, a prayer, such a little effort in 
participation to accomplish so much." 

Responsibilities of The United Thank Offering Treasurer 

BRANCH : 

1. Be sure every woman in your Parish has a Blue Box. Keep U.T.O. foremost 
in the minds of all members through leaflets, programs and announcements 
of interest. You may get envelopes or Blue Boxes from your Convocation 
U.T.O. Treasurer. 

2. Arrange with your Rector for the Ingatherings and publicize the time and 
date. It is the custom to have our Ingatherings twice a year, October 18th, 
St. Luke's Day and March 25th, Feast of the Annunciation. A Corporate 
Service of Holy Communion is traditional for these. However, the service 
need not be held on the specific date. Many churches have their Ingathering 
at a regular Sunday Service in order that more people may become aware 
of it. 

3. Arrange some alternate way in which people who cannot attend the Ingather- 
ing can get their offering to you, but stress attendance as an active and vital 
part of the offering. The aim and goal should be for an increased participa- 
tion, as well as the amount received. 

4. Please be sure that your Branch Offering reaches your Convocation U.T.O. 
Treasurer as soon as possible; one check made out to her along with the 
number of envelopes distributed, the number returned, and the number at 
the Ingathering Service. 

CONVOCATION: 

1. Keep accurate record of the Offerings from each Branch and send a copy 
to DIOCESAN U.T.O. TREASURER with one check covering the total 
offering from your Convocation. 

2. Notify Branches of dates of Ingathering and give deadline for sending 
check to you. 

3. Make yourself known to all Branch U.T.O. Treasurers in your Convocation 
and let them know you are available to help them. 

DIOCESAN: 

1. Send a letter in late August to the Parish and Convocation U.T.O. Treasurers 
with instructions for Fall Ingathering. As soon as all reports are in, send a 

54 



check to Mr. Lindley M. Franklin, Jr., Executive Council, 815 Second Avenue, 
New York 17, N. Y., for the total amount. 

2. In February, send a letter as above and a check as soon as all reports are in. 

3. Keep accurate records of Offering from each Parish and Convocation. 

4. Type report of amount of Offering from each Parish for Yearbook in March, 
after calendar year has been closed. 

5. Write report for Annual Meeting and for Yearbook. 

6. Make arrangements before Annual Meeting for the Offering to be taken at 
the Communion Service at Annual Meeting — this being the Ingathering for 
the Diocese. The Convocation U.T.O. Treasurers or their representatives 
are asked to do this. Give them a slip of paper with the total amount from 
their Convocation for the year, which they present with the Offering. 

Diocesan Alms Basin 

The idea of the women of the Diocese of North Carolina donating their 
old pieces of gold and silver in order that we might have our own Diocesan 
United Thank Offering Alms Basin was presented to the Executive Board of the 
Woman's Auxiliary by Mrs. B. W. Roberts of St. Phillip's Church, Durham. A 
committee was appointed in 1953 to bring about the successful completion of this 
project. This committee consisted of Mrs. William L. Steele of Raleigh, as chair- 
man, Mrs. U. T. Holmes of Chapel Hill, Mrs. Brown Patterson of Greensboro 
and The Right Reverend Edwin Anderson Penick, Bishop of the Diocese of 
North Carolina. 

Parish U.T.O. Custodians collected cherished momentos of silver and gold 
and these were sent through the District Custodians to Mrs. Steele. Finally 5 
barrels and 2 boxes of metal (silver and gold) were collected from women all 
over the Diocese, and these were shipped to Mrs. Louis F. Glasier of New York 
who designed and made the Alms Basin. The Basin is centered with the seal 
of the Diocese executed in gold from the wedding rings, crosses, pins, etc. that 
were donated. Around the edge of the Basin are the words "Accept, O Lord, from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering". 

The Alms Basin was completed and dedicated to the Glory of God by Bishop 
Penick at the Early Celebration of Holy Communion at the Woman's Auxiliary 
Annual Meeting, April 20, 1955, at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina. 

The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to the parishes of the Diocese for use 
at their Spring and Fall United Thank Offering Ingatherings, and may be 
obtained by contacting the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer.

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN 
MINISTRIES 

Mrs. Gilbert Ross, Secretary 
1200 Ruayne Road, Greensboro 

COLLEGE WORK is the attempt to help students, faculty, and others on 
campus continue to BE the church where they are. It depends upon the efforts of 
many . . . the chaplains (our diocese has 8 full-time) who provide the Word 
and the Sacraments, teach, counsel, parish churches which express interest and 
support in a number of ways (many parish priests are part-time chaplains) and 
of course, every Christian whose prayerful concern provides for the extension of 
this serving ministry. 

How to Start as Branch Chairman — 

1. Get the file of your predecessor and talk with her. 

2. Get the names of young people from your parish who will be going away 
to school in the fall (use bulletin or newsletter to request this information if 
not available from church office.) 

3. Send one Card of Commendation per student (going away) to the chaplain 
or parish priest in the academic community. Often this is the only way they 
know the student is on campus. Complete cards carefully, including comments. 
You may order cards (free) from The Executive Council of the Episcopal 
Church, 815 Second Ave., N. Y. C. 10017. 

It's important that you evaluate the needs of your area since so many factors 
enter the picture . . . size of parish, number of students away, location (in, 
near or far from an academic community). Talk with your rector, parents, chap- 
lain and faculty members (if near a campus) . . . any interested person to dis- 
cover needs and set goals. When you come up with good ideas, see how they work 
out, then share so we can list them in next year's yearbook to help someone else. 
Patterns of college work are changing (as are most patterns) to meet new chal- 
lenges. This calls for imaginative and flexible planning. There are many ways, 
specific and general, that we can be a part of college work, no doubt many that 
your branch or parish uses. Consider all the possibilities and decide which are 
best in your situation. 

Remember students, teachers, chaplains, college workers in prayers, corporate 
and individual. 

Keep in touch with students ... by personal letters, cards at special times, 
church bulletins, newsletters, devotional materials. 

Plan a corporate communion breakfast for students before they leave in the 
fall and when they return for the Christmas holidays. 

Plan "So You're Going to College" sessions for High School students after 
graduation, asking rector to write letter of congratulations to graduates enclosing 
pamphlet "So You're Going To College". Mail booklet "College Is For Christians" 
to parents. 

Include a college work item in parish budget (funds continue to be needed for 
Program — see April letter for items included in Program — and for scholarships for 
local students to attend camps, conferences, summer work projects). 

Support the Church Society for College Work in its pioneering program ($10 
for membership, $1 per year for the society's publication the Church Review). 

Welcome students back into full parish life when they return. 

Parishes in Academic Communities have additional opportunities to — Welcome 

56 



all students and faculty to the parish fellowship — greeting them at services, invit- 
ing them to share in worship, choir, church school, social functions, etc. (some 
parishes make up a sheet listing all functions to give students). 

Invite students into homes, remembering to include foreign students . . . 
perhaps "adopt" a student. 

Talk with chaplain or priest serving the schools, offer assistance, learn of 
needs (ask for names of married students so that couples may visit them). 

Assist the student group, or if none exists, help to organize- 

Have an "Open House" at the parish house, student center, rectory, or at a 
faculty home near campus. 

Assist in providing funds for vocational and other conferences, books, special 
programs and chaplain's discretionary fund. 

As Branch Chairman you'll want to keep the church's mission to the campus 
before the churchwomen and the parish, particularly the opportunities within the 
diocese. Planning a special college work program for the branch (or better, for 
the parish) is one way. Another year-round way is to display college work ma- 
terials . . • posters, pamphlets etc. and to use the tract rack. 

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES is the name given to the total ministry of all 
Christians . . . lay, ordained, and special. Traditionally the special concern of 
ECW has been the recruiting of women for full-time work. This continues to be 
an important responsibility but now we stress opportunities for men, women and 
young people in unified parishes. The purpose of Christian Ministries is to make 
these opportunities for full or part-time church work known. 

As Branch Chairman you should be informed on types of professional and 
volunteer opportunities (qualifications, training, etc.) offered by the church. Some 
ways of alerting others to the needs are: 

Plan a branch or parish program on church vocations and volunteer programs. 

Work with the rector to find ways of reaching the young people, perhaps a 
specific program once a year for the church school and youth group. Ask him to 
include vocational opportunities for women when he preaches on the ministry. 

Inform young people (High School and College) about Summer Service 
Projects. 

Start a "Talent File" listing interests and talents of communicants which may 
be used for volunteer work in the church or community. 

Plan a Vocational Guidance Conference or workshop (with other parishes 
or branches) for Jr. and Sr. H. S. students in your area. 

Place recruiting materials in tract rack, using posters and brochures on 
bulletin board. Use parish bulletin for announcements. Supply High School Ad- 
visors with literature. 

Pray that the right persons will offer themselves for the work of the church; 
ask that prayers for recruits be included in church, church school, programs for 
youth, men, and women. 

In summary, we must all work to provide a climate in which young people can 
see challenges in church vocations — remembering that attitudes expressed in the 
home are more important than any other motivation. 

As Convocation Chairman of College Work and 
Christian Ministries 

You are the liaison between the branch chairmen in your convocation and the 
diocesan officer. 
You'll want to: 

Be informed on college work in the diocese, particularly your convocation 

57 



. . . and on church vocational and volunteer opportunities (use available 

resource materials). 

Keep a file of material and information available. Keep all communications 

from branch and diocesan officers (to turn over to successor). 

Keep in touch with branch chairmen in the convocation, encouraging and 

helping when needed- 

Advise the Diocesan Secretary of College Work and Christian Ministries of 

happenings and progress in the convocation. Send her copies of your letters 

to branch secretaries. 

Attend convocation meetings, reporting when necessary. Whenever possible, 

talk with branch chairmen at convocation meetings. 

Offer to speak at branch meetings and to help in any way. 

Some of the suggestions for branch chairmen may be of value for convocation 
planning. Convocations, of course, differ (as do branches) so it is important that 
you discover the interests and needs of yours. Call or write the diocesan secretary 
at any time . • . for assistance or to make suggestions.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. S. Malone Parham, Director 
2915 Meadow Lane, Henderson 

The PURPOSE of the Church Periodical Club is to provide reading material 
for those who could not otherwise obtain it. It is the only organization of the 
Episcopal Church devoted solely to the ministry of the printed word. 

Wherever the church is at work, in your community, in this country and 
overseas, the CPC sends reading material, all without charge. The money to 
carry on this ministry comes from gifts to the CPC National Books Fund. Requests 
for books come to the CPC from every continent in the world, and are filled 
as far as your gifts ivill permit. 

The printed word is one of the most powerful weapons the Christian may 
use. It has been said, "If we did not have a Church Periodical Club, we would 
surely have to create one". 

In our diocese CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, headed 
by a diocesan Director of the CPC, and carried out by CPC Secretaries in the 
branches and the convocations. 

Suggested Procedure for CPC Secretaries 

(1) To Promote the CPC in the Branch: 

Obtain the records from your predecessor in office. 

Learn the purpose of the CPC. Study the CPC Handbook. 

Keep a supply of CPC literature on hand. Distribute it at every chance. 

Help to keep your parish library and tract rack adequately supplied. 

Plan a CPC program each year. Make it simple but inclusive of all phases 

of the work. 

Solicit your Rector's help for the CPC. 

Find people and places in your community to distribute appropriate reading 

material to: viz.; mission churches nearby, school libraries, low income 

families, mental hospitals, nursing homes, jails, etc. 

Keep a record of the work you do, and the money you send to the National 

Books Fund. This will help when you fill out your Annual Report blank. 
VERY IMPORTANT: Send all checks to the Diocesan Director. (NOT to 
the diocesan treasurer). The Director is required to keep books on each 
Branch. 

(2) To Promote Gifts to the National Book Fund: 

Try to get the CPC in your Branch Budget each year. 

Memorial Gifts. Present the idea of sending a personal check to the Books 

Fund as a memorial. Send check to Director, so your branch will get credit, 

and Director can write an acknowledgement to the family. 

Coin Card. This little dime folder produces amazing results. Take some coin 

cards to meetings, and point out how dimes can BUY A BOOK. 

Sell Magazine Subscriptions. Profit to go to the Books Fund. 

Bazaars. Remember the Books Fund when the time comes to decide the 

disposition of your bazaar money. 

Share your ideas. New ways are forever being found by individuals and 

groups with imagination. Write the Director about your projects to earn 

money for the Books Fund. Other branches will be glad to learn about them.

PRAYERS 

GUIDANCE 
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favor and further 
us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in 
Thee, we may glorify Thy Holy Name, and finally, by Thy mercy, obtaiD ever- 
lasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their King through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind, help us, we pray Thee so to reveal Thy 
love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and 
people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church 
in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may offer 
abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled 
with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Send us, O God, as Thy messengers to hearts without a home, to lives with- 
out love, to the crowds without a guide. Send us to the children whom none have 
blessed, to the famished whom none have visited, to the fallen whom none have 
lifted, to the bereaved whom none have comforted. Kindle Thy flame on the altars 
of our hearts, that others may be warmed thereby; causing Thy light to shine in 
our souls, that others may see the way; keep our sympathies and insight ready, 
our wills keen, our hands quick to help our brothers in their need; for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers into 
Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard and guide 
the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept 
from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, and gifts, and joyful 
service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them 
with Thy children in all the world; for his sake whose life and death and rising 
to life again were a song of praise to Thee, Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and 
the Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of 



Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the 
glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 
O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know and the 

strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy 
heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES 
We pray, O Lord, for guidance as we search for laborers for Thy harvest. 
May we remember that whatever our calling, it may be dedicated to Thee. Bless 
teachers, students, and chaplains at all institutions of learning. Open our eyes that 
we may find and encourage the right young men and women for full time church 
work. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that 
they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the 
saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray 
Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and 
labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark 
places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and grace stablish Thy Church in 
the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION OF OFFICERS 
O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us 
light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. 
Amen. 

SERVICE FOR INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS 
For Branch Use 

The Officers and Board shall advance to the Altar rail, then the President 
shall say: 

Reverend Sir, on behalf of the women of Church, I 

present to you the Officers of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this parish. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Blessed Spirit of God, come to these Thy servants in all Thy fullness and 
power. Compass their minds with wisdom. Fire their wills with Thy might. Melt 
their hearts with Thy love. Through Thy grace make them wholly Thine until 
they are lost in Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Will you accept the responsibilities placed upon you, and endeavor to dis- 
charge the duties of leadership to the best of your ability? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you, through private prayer, Bible study, and regular at- 



tendance at the Holy Communion, seek to grow in knowledge of God and His 

purpose for you, and for the world? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Will you strive by word and deed for the advancement of God's 
kingdom in this parish and beyond ? 

OFFICERS: We will. 

RECTOR: Let us pray: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, visit, we pray Thee, these officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen with Thy love. Enlighten their minds more and more with the light 
of the Gospel so that they may walk before Thee in humility, yet with a high 
sense of the great privilege of their responsibility. Save them from complacency 
and fear of new ways; and give them selflessness — patience — courage — gentle- 
ness — thankfulness — humor — faithfulness — enthusiasm — wisdom. So, as they 
daily present themselves to Thee for renewal, may they be even stronger channels 
of Thy grace, and instruments of Thy will in the spiritual life of the Diocese. 
Amen. 

The Blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be 
upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen. 

SERVICE OF INSTALLATION OF 
OFFICERS FOR THE EPISCOPAL. CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask 
the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in the performance 
of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 
Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help ; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech 
Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special 
work for which they have been selected ; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in 
the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; 
and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities for 
service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of Thy Holy Church, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, zealous, 

sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be 
with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Eighty-fifth Annual Meeting 
EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 



THE CHURCH OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD 

Raleigh, North Carolina 
APRIL 4, s, 1967 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Annual Meeting 1967 

My greetings to you, as your diocesan president and also as a member of the 
host parish, are especially warm and cordial. I rejoice to see so many present 
and I hope this meeting will be rich in fellowship as well as informative, stim- 
ulating, and challenging. 

At this time, I also express my very deep and sincere appreciation to my 
rector and parish for hosting this meeting. Thank you all very much. 

In November 1962 two members of the Diocesan Nominating Committee 
came to see me, asking me to accept the nomination for the office of president- 
elect. Offhand, I replied that we might not have an organization eighteen months 
from then- You recall, no doubt, how at that time we were thinking and talking 
in terms of "Changing Patterns". 

Here we are today about four and one-half years later. As your retiring 
president, I could very well give you one of two reports, either an encouraging 
account of all your accomplishments or a rather discouraging report depicting 
your problems. I am quite familiar with both. However, I bid you listen atten- 
tively to your officers as they report and you will hear many interesting and 
encouraging facts. Suffice it for me to say in all humility that I rejoice in your 
accomplishments in spite of your frustrations. 

Truly, this triennium has been one of transition for all of us. A fellow 
churchwoman expressed my feelings, yours too no doubt, quite aptly just a few 
days ago when she wrote, "I know you have come to this time with mixed emo- 
tions. We have come through some difficult days of transition. This transition 
will continue and let us hope and pray that the end result will be very good" 

Yes, this transition will continue for in many respects it has only begun- It 
becomes increasingly evident that the organization of Episcopal Churchwomen 
must examine and evaluate its purpose, program, and structure continually. Cur- 
rent reports indicate that such studies are being made at every level: national, 
diocesan, convocation, and parish. Your Executive Board has made some pro- 
gress in its evaluation. Accordingly, resultant recommendations will be present- 
ed for your consideration during this meeting. Likewise, some branches are ef- 
fecting interesting changes in organizational structure, programs, and projects- 
You will hear about these in the Spring Planning Day workshops. 

As we have shaied mutual problems, concerns, and disappointments let us 
also share new ideas, helpful suggestions, and practical solutions. Here I would 
leave with you a quotation which frequently goads me. It is from the Talmud: 
"Look ahead- You are not required to complete the task; neither are you per- 
mitted to lay it down." 

Surely, the end result of our transitions will be very good if we look ahead 
and continue in the faith as St. Paul exhorted the disciples at Antioch to do. 

10 



To continue in the faith requires perseverance, patience, and prayer. Be assur- 
ed, nevertheless, that as we follow Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour faith- 
fully and obediently into his changing world, we too shall be changed and that 
change will be very good ; not only for us, but also for this confused and dis- 
torted world that cries out to be redeemed and must be reconciled to God in 
Christ. This is our mission both singularly and collectively. He will use us in 
exact proportion to our faithfulness and our conformity to his image. 

My tenure as your president ends tomorrow. Endings are but new begin- 
nings. We have chosen an able and dedicated president for the next three years. 
Let us begin the next triennium under her leadership with renewed faith, hope, 
and joy. 

Thank you for the privilege of serving as your president. I will relinquish 
the office deeply grateful to Almighty God and to you for the many blessings 
which have attended me. For the guidance and cooperation of the Bishops, the 
Director of Program, and the clergy; for the loyal support and devotion of ex- 
cellent Executive Boards; and for all dedicated women, who have worked 
faithfully and diligently in the churches, I am most grateful. Thank you for 
your cooperation, loyalty, friendship, and love. May God bless you all abun- 
dantly and may we, the women of the Church, continue in the faith, grow in 
grace and daily increase in knowledge and love of our Lord and Saviour Jesus 
Christ, and serve him until at length we and the whole Church come to his 
everlasting kingdom. 

Mrs. W.H.R. Jackson 

President

IN MEMORIAM 

Since the Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen a year ago, two 
past-presidents have died: Marion Alston Bourne on September 4th, and Mabel 
Simpson Lucas on September 28th. 

Marion Bourne, born in Warrenton, North Carolina, was for forty-six years 
of her life in Tarboro, an active leader in the life of her town and parish. One of 
her civic interests was the Edgecombe County Memorial Library of which she was 
an influencial supporter and trustee. A valued member of the parish of Calvary 
Church, she was a guiding spirit in the local branch of the Episcopal Church- 
women, was chairman of the District, and was President of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary of the Diocese of North Carolina from 19+6 to 19V9. During her term of 
office the Quiet Day of Prayer and Meditation was begun, a day of corporate 
worship which continues to enrich the lives of the Episcopal Churchwomen. Her 
good judgment was sought for the work of the women af every level, including 
her writing of the history of the Woman's Auxiliary on the occasion of its 
seventy-fifth anniversary. Recognizing the potential of all people in all walks of 
life. Marion Bourne kindled their desire to know and to love God, and she was 
a wellspring of strength and courage to the many who sought her guidance. 

Mabel Lucas, born in Spartansburg, South Carolina, and educated at Converse 
in that city, was for many years a communicant of Holy Trinity Church, Greens- 
boro. She served the local auxiliary in a number of offices and was president of 
the Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina. Later she served as the U. T. O. 
Custodian of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Province of Sewanee. She was 
instrumental in the organization of St. Frances Church in Greensboro, of which 
she was a charter member, serving there in various capacities. Several years ago 
she returned her membership to Holy Trinity, from which church she was buried. 
She traveled extensively; yet her life was always centered in her family, her 
church, her community, in all of these areas faithfully performing every type of 
duty and devotion and bringing to the attention of the Churchwomen additional 
spheres of influence. 

And so at this time, we hold in loving remembrance Marion Bourne and 
Mabel Lucas, in appreciaion of their unselfish service and in the sure faith of 
their having entered the gates of everlasting life. 

Let us stand for a moment of silence . . . Let us pray. 

We give them back to Thee, dear Lord, who gavest them to us. 

Yet as Thou didst not lose them in giving, so we have not lost 

them by their return. Not as the World giveth, giveth Thou, 

O Lover of souls! What Thou givest, Thou takest not away. 

For what is Thine is ours always, if we are Thine. 

And life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only 

a horizon, and a horizon is nothing but the limit of our sight. 

Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further. 

Cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly; draw us closer 

to Thyself that we may know ourselves nearer to them who are 

with Thee. And while Thou dost prepare a place for us, prepare 

us for that happy place, that where they are, and Thou art, 

we too may be. Amen. 

Mrs. Leslie Evans 

Miss Dolores Pitt 

Mrs. Arthur Le Craw

REPORT OF COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Our remembrances will long hold the spiritual inspiration and practical value 
gotten from this noteworthy Annual Meeting. 

We have been blessed with perfect weather. 

We have received, through the Rev. Louis G. Melcher and his staff, a most 
gracious welcome to a beautiful church. 

Mrs. Godfrey Cheshire, Jr. and her committee have been everywhere dis- 
persing graciousness and hospitality, the results of endless hours of preparation. 

The Clergy have given generously of their time to bring us the needed 
perspective of prayer. 

Bishop Fraser's address was a tonic; taken regularly it should expand our 
thinking, stir our ideas, and help us all at the parish level. 

Father Carral's "Miracle" is one in which we would all like to participate 
and someday more of us may be able to do just that. Thank you for being here, 
Father. 

The Rev. L. Bartine Sherman's report and slides on Mission to Hong Kong 
stretched our minds and our imaginations, delightfully entertained us, and gave 
us a view of the living church. 

The Executive Board has pointed the way for us to go with excellent reports, 
and added to our enjoyment with perfect timing in each section of the program. 

Mrs. Godfrey's talk should give us inspiration and determination to find 
God's way to do his will and not ours. 

Our verbal thanks cannot express our love for Vertie Jackson and our 
appreciation for her leadership — a great lady we all admire. 

To all those leaving the Board we express our thanks for their endless hours of 
work done in our behalf. 

The beauty of the needle point for the Bishop's Chapel, envisioned by 
Margaret Motsinger and carried out by her committee, was for all of us a dream 
come true. 

We extend our thanks to each and everyone who has helped make these days 
so outstanding. 

With such a song in our hearts we should at this time and in this place give 
thanks to God. 

Let us pray together the prayer of thanksgiving found on page 591 of the 
Prayer Book. 

Committee: 

Mrs. E. H. Dudley, Chairman 

Mrs. F. H. Gregory, Jr. 

Mrs. Wm. Scott 

Mrs. Steve Millender

ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRESIDENCY 
AT ANNUAL MEETING, 1967. 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr. 



I should like you all to stand with me in an attempt to express our affectionate 
appreciation to Vertie Jackson for her dedicated, patient and encouraging leader- 
ship during the past three years. It is with personal gratitude for her sympathetic 
guidance and encouragement to me that I present her, on your behalf, with the 
beautiful Past President's pendant which the Bishop blessed this morning. 

On the fly leaf of Robert Ruark's book "Something of Value" is quoted an old 
African proverb which, paraphrased, is something like this: "Never take away 
from people their traditional customs unless you are sure that there is something 
of value with which to replace them". 

During the past two days, we have been hearing of challenge, change, re- 
structure, reorganization, re-evaluation — eloquently from many people. Sometimes 
this is a little overwhelming! 

We have also heard of people of other culture — of Panama and Hong Kong 
— of the diversity of Anglicans. Just as much of the strength of the Anglican 
Communion lies in its diversity and flexibility, so there is strength in diversity 
and flexibility among Churchwomen. In some places the Episcopal Churchwomen 
are truly functioning as is best for that locality at this moment. Some places are 
experimenting with new plans. We should not be afraid of trying new approaches, 
realizing that they will not always work, but always looking for that basic 
"Something of Value". 

For myself, the idea of being your President was, for a long time, quite 
terrifying. Then I remembered words made famous by one of my personal heroes. 
On Christmas Day, 1939, I lived on the edge of the London area. No time could 
have seemed more transitional, no future more uncertain. Morning brought even 
a changed skyline following nights of bombing. Then came the calm voice of 
King George VI to steady and encourage us: 

"And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year, 'Give me a light 
that I may tread safely into the unknown'. He replied, 'Go out in'to the darkness 
and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light 
and safer than a known way.' "

SYDNEY H. SHAW 

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT 

ROCKY MOUNT, N. C 

Member: American Institute of Accountants and 
N. C. Association of Certified Public Accountants 



Episcopal Churchwomen 
Diocese of North Carolina 

I have examined the Statement of Fund Balances of The Episcopal Church- 
women, Diocese of Ncrth Carolina, at December 31, 1966, and the related state- 
ment of Changes in Fund Balances for the year ended that date. The examination 
was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and according- 
ly included such tests of the accounting records and other procedures as were 
deemed appropriate in the circumstances. 

In my opinion, the accompanying Statement of Fund Balances of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, at December 31, 1966, and the re- 
lated Statements of Changes in Fund Balances for the year then ended present 
fairly the recorded cash receipts and disbursements for the year ended Decem- 
ber 31, 1966, and the resulting fund balances at that date, in conformity with 
generally accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that 
of the preceding year.

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 
History 

The first organized women's groups within the Church were called "Female 
Missionary Societies," as their purpose was to raise money for the support of mis- 
sionaries. In 1S71 General Convention recommended that the women of the Church, 
in every parish and mission in the land, be organized under the name of the "Wo- 
man's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." This was done in 1872 and for many 
years the chief function of organized women's groups of the Church was to raise 
money for the support of the missionary work of the Church. 

When the Church reorganized its administration and the National Council 
was set up in 1919, it asked that the Woman's Auxiliary, instead of being auxiliary 
only to the Board of Missions, be made "The Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America." 
This change widened and increased the responsibilities and opportunities open to 
the women of the Church. 

In recognition of the fact that women were a part of the Church, not just 
an auxiliary to it, in 1958 National Council created the General Division of Wo- 
men's Work, the executive body on the national level, representing all of the work 
of all the women of the Church. 

Following this action the Triennial Meeting recommended "Episcopal Church- 
women" as the designation for the women of a diocese, and "The Women of 
Church", as the name in the parish. 

The history of women's work in the Diocese of North Carolina dates back 
to 1881 when the Diocese of North Carolina was the whole area of the state. The 
Rt. Rev- Theodore Lyman, Bishop of the Diocese, asked Mrs. John Wilkes of 
Charlotte to form a Diocesan organization of Woman's Auxiliary branches. In 
1882 at the Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, representatives from six branches 
with a total membership of one hundred were organized as the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Diocese of North Carolina to the Board of Missions, thereby becoming one 
of twenty-six organized in the national church prior to 1883. 

In April 1959 at the Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, a resolution was 
adopted changing the name of the organization to "Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina". It was suggested that, for uniformity, parish branches 
be known as "Episcopal Churchwomen of Parish".

PURPOSE AND PROGRAM 

The general purpose of the Episcopal Churchwomen Is really no different 
from the purpose of the Church — namely, to be the Body of Christ in the world, 
to worship Him and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 

Episcopal Churchwomen is simply an organization within the Church pro- 
viding additional opportunities for worship, study, fellowship, stewardship, and 
service. It enables churchwomen to be informed about the total program of the 
Church; to participate more fully in carrying out the program of the Church; and 
to pioneer in new and creative forms of ministry. 

Churchwomen have been pioneers in mission and ministry. To quote from 
the Committee on Mutual Responsibility: "The women of the Church, especially 
through the United Thank Offering, have long anticipated the concept of Mutual 
Responsibility." 

Episcopal Churchwomen must continue a program of worship, study, fellow- 
ship, and action with renewed zeal, enthusiasm, and joy. We must respond to the 
challenge to new and creative forms of ministry — ever seeking new and creative 
ways to deepen our commitment to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master, to serve 
Him obediently, and to witness to His reality, power, and glory. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE DIOCESE 

See the Constitution and By-Laws in this YEAR BOOK, page 63. 



ORGANIZATION IN THE CONVOCATION 

See the Constitution, Article X, page 66. 



ORGANIZATION IN A PARISH OR MISSION 

The organization of Episcopal Churchwomen in a parish or mission is known 
as a Branch and is patterned after the Diocesan organization. The membership is 
composed of communicants who choose to be active members- The structure should 
be simple and flexible, depending on the size, interests, and needs of the group. 
The officers should correspond as nearly as possible to the Diocesan officers. 

The Executive Board consists of the elected officers, committee chairmen, 
chapter chairmen, and any member of the Executive Council, General Division of 
Women's Work, Provincial Representatives, or Diocesan Executive Board who is 
a communicant of the parish, and the rector. The Board, under the guidance of 
the president, should plan, promote, direct, and evaluate the work of the Branch. 
Plans of the Executive Board should always be approved by the entire group. 

In large parishes the Branch may be divided into smaller groups known as 
Chapters. The Chapters may have officers corresponding to those of the Branch.

that it was seconded and whether carried or defeated. She should also read 
summaries of reports and announcements. Her responsibilities are: 

1. To carry on all necessary correspondence pertaining to the group as di- 
rected by the President. (Some parish groups find it best to have both a 
recording and a corresponding secretary. In that case, correspondence and 
notices are taken care of by the Corresponding Secretary.) 

2. To keep an accurate record of names and addresses of members. 

3. To keep a record of the number of members present at meetings. 

4. To supply Diocesan Year-Book Chairman with accurate lists of names 
and addresses of parish officers and chairmen, and to forward notices of 
changes and replacements during the year. 

5. To keep copies of the Constitution and By-Laws so that she may inform

DEVOTIONAL LIFE 



Mrs. W. D. Holloman, Jr., Secretary 
1110 Church Street, Scotland Neck 



The Secretary of Devotional Life will serve more effectively if she recog- 
nizes that one of her first responsibilities is to deepen and strengthen her own 
personal commitment to God through a discipline of private prayer and study 
and public worship. Of primary importance, too, is an early consultation with 
her Rector that they may work cut together any plans and programs for the 
spiritual enrichment of the Churchwomen. No special programs should be ini- 
tiated; no prayer or study groups started without his approval. Feel free to 
call on Diocesan Secretary as needed. 

SUGGESTED AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY 

1. Correlate over-all planning with President, Secretaries of Christian Edu- 
cation, Christian Social Relations, etc. Suggest that a full program be devoted 
to some aspect of Prayer. Use records or tape or ask Rector to instruct. 

2. Plan devotions for general and executive meetings. 

3. Work with Chapter Devotional Leaders in planning for chapter meet- 
ings and to consider the needs of your churchwomen. 

4. Plan for corporate communions for special days and groups. 

5. Plan Quiet Days on the parish level. 

6. Be alert for special needs and special prayers and take them to your 
Rector. 

7. If your Rector approves, help form Prayer Groups and Bible Study Groups. 

8. Take an interest in your parish tract rack and library. Assemble devo- 
tional materials. Keep up to date on books and materials. Reading is essential 
to spiritual growth. 

9. Practice and actively encourage the habit of private and family prayer. 

10. Acquaint yourself and your group with the idea of Retreat. Advertise 
those held at the Terraces in Southern Pines- 

11. Through the above mentioned "extras" or in any other way try to 
reach women not reached through regular meetings of Churchwomen. 

TECHNIQUES IN PREPARING AND LEADING DEVOTIONS 

1. Allow plenty of time to prepare devotions for meetings. Thought and 
quality are much moie important than duration of presentation. 

2. Start with silent prayers. This silence could be preceded by a line from 
a Psalm or by one of the Opening Sentences from Morning or Evening Prayer. 

3. Have devotions pertinent to program and/or special need. 

4. Do not become stereotyped. Remember that the material and methods 
to be used are limited only by your imagination. Do not be afraid to use in- 
formality and contemporary language. 

5. Enlist attention and group participation by means of litanies, prayers 
in unison, and by having others to take the service or to assist.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Mrs. Robert E. Merritt, Secretary 
832 Country Club Road, Mt. Airy 

Television . . . Supreme Court decisions . . . racial demonstrations . . . more 
leisure . . . transistors . . . riots . . . breakdown of the family. In this time of 
change we need more than ever to try to understand what is happening and what 
God is saying to us now. As we meet together in God's Name, we should use 
fully this opportunity to face the present and the future without fear. Let us 
examine the contemporary scene with loving concern, trying to see life whole, 
trying to make our studies honest and relevant. 

With the Rector's help, let us deepen and clarify our understanding of 
Christian Education. The Christian Education we need today is not only intel- 
lectual: it leads to commitment to our Lord and to one another. We listen to- 
gether to what God is saying to us now. This kind of learning involves us, it 
engages our attention, our minds, our feelings and our wills. We are changed. 

In addition to our primary responsibility for education for the Church- 
women, let us be sure that our program relates to the whole of Christian Educa- 
tion in the parish. In the list below we have a wealth of study materials care- 
fully prepared for the purpose of Christian Education. These are all suitable 
for parishwide programs of study. We ought to consult our rectors, our parish 
councils, our church school superintendents so that we are a part of the whole 
program of Christian Education in the parish. 

These books will help us to prepare for the task of the secretary of Chris-

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. Don Blanton, Secretary 
Country Club Drive, Lexington 

Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and mind and soul and thy 
neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hangs all the law and the 
Prophets. How many times have we heard this? How many times have we said 
this, and how many times have we thought — yes, I believe this; this is true. Yet, 
how hard it is to live as though we really believe this. Loving our neighbor as 
ourselves necessitates seeing things from his point of view, trying to walk in 
his shoes; losing ourselves in his problems. 

How many of us are willing to do this? How many of us are willing to try 
to do this? However, is this really the problem? Is not the problem really to 
"love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and mind and soul?" Is this not the 
actual fly in the ointment? If we could do this — if we could really love the Lord 
our God with all our being, we would not be able to contain this love; for as 
surely as the night follows the day, the love for our Lord does perpetuate love 
for our fellowmen. If this were to happen, our eyes would be opened to the 
needs of those around us. We would not have to say, "I wish someone would tell 
me of a needed Christian Social Relations Project". But alas, this millennium 
has not arrived; we are still somewhere between what we are and what we 
would be. Therefore, we need just about all the help we can get! 

A few areas of need and concern are listed in the following outline. You 
will be able to add more. Some of these are sponsored by our Church and others 
are ecumenical endeavors. There are many areas for service inspired by our 
secular society. Social agencies both private and public, even civic clubs and 
politics offer projects for helping our fellow man. Another avenue for involve- 
ment in the needs of our brothers is through the many uses of federal funds. 
The Economic Opportunities Act adds many challenging ideas for helping. 
These structures for service exist — why not use them? The danger here is the 
sometimes fine line between "do goodism" and Christian Social Relations — 
Yes! Our motives make the difference! When we serve our fellowman with love 
in our hearts and in the name of our Lord, secular organizations are indeed 
useful tools for His work. 

May we pray fervently, and labor diligently to bring ourselves to this 
coveted state of love and understanding and service, knowing that all things are 
possible for those who "wait upon the Lord". 

I What is Christian Social Relations? 

The way a Christian relates to society. 

II How? Worship, Study, Action 

1. Worship — Open our hearts to the love of God- 

2. Study — Open our minds to the needs of others. 

3. Action — Open our resources to help His Children (our brothers).

MISSIONS 

Mrs. Sterling A. Stoudemire, Secretary 
712 Gimghoul Road, Chapel Hill 

The purpose of this department is to encourage active participation by our 
Churchwomen in the mission of the Church, by: 

1. Praying daily, mentioning each one of our missionaries by name. Use the 
prayer manual "Far and Near". 

2. Try to have at least one mission program a year for your Branch 
meeting. Give news of where the missionaries are and what they are doing. 
Have a map of the world, and show where they are located. 

3. Write to the missionaries, especially at Christmas, Easter, and on their 
birthdays, giving news of the Diocese. 

4. Try to see that your Branch budget is divided 50% inside the parish, 
and 50% outside. Try to give to Missions through the Diocesan pledge so that 
the money can be sent out "in force" through recommended projects that have been 
given first priority. 

5. The missionary Christmas gift is an extra and is to be sent by November 
15th to the Convocation Treasurer, who sends the total amount from all the 
Branches of her Convocation to the Diocesan Treasurer by December first. The 
total of all the money collected is divided equally among all the active and re- 
tired missionaries listed on the assignment sheet. Please be sure the Branch 
Treasurer knows she is to send the check to the Convocation Treasurer and not 
to the Diocesan one. 

6. Send all other monetary gifts for missionaries or missions, domestic or 
overseas, directly from the Branch to the Diocesan Churchwomen's Treasurer 
made payable to her with instructions as to allocation of said checks. If it is 
going overseas, please enclose the amount of postage needed.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Mrs. Oliver Roddey 
811 Queen's Road, Charlotte 

The United Thank Offering has grown with each Triennium from $82.71 
in 1886 to $4,790,921.51 in 1964. With this increase in money the usefulness of 
this offering to the church has grown with it. Over half of the missionary work 
of the whole Episcopal Church is made possible by the United Thank Offering, 
and it will continue to play a vital part in our church's future. 

The women of this diocese have offered their praise and thanks to God in a 
very tangible way — $27,374-70 has been given in 1966 through this offering; 
however in order to keep up with the needs of the times we shall have to have 
more women participating in this great privilege of thanksgiving, service and 
praise. It behooves a!! of us to heed the words of Bishop William T. Manning 
of New York, as we carry on this service to all mankind — "Never have any 
hesitation about pressing the claim of the United Thank Offering, but have 
very great hesitation about failing to give any woman, for whom you are re- 
sponsible, her opportunity to share in it. Do not feel as though you were mere col- 
lectors of money, even for so great a cause as the church's missionary work; 
realize that your work means tar more than that, that you are missionaries 
yourselves, doing a work of deep spiritual value; that you are helping to make 
every woman, who becomes interested, not merely a contributor to the fund, 
but a more earnest disciple of Him whom we worship and serve, a more inter- 
ested member of her own parish, a truer churchwoman and a better Christian." 



Responsibilities of The United Thank Offering Treasurer 

BRANCH: 

1. Be sure every woman in your Parish has a Blue Box. Keep U.T.O. foremost 
in the minds of all members through leaflets, programs and announcements 
of interest. Order your Blue Boxes and envelopes from the Seabury Book 
Store, 815 Second Ave., New York, N. Y. 10017. 

2. Arrange with your Rector for the Ingatherings and publicize the time and 
date. It is the custom to have our Ingatherings twice a year, October 18th, 
St. Luke's Day and March 25th, Feast of the Annunciation. A Corporate 
Service of Holy Communion is traditional for these. However, the service 
need not be held on the specific date. Many churches have their Ingathering 
at a regular Sunday Service in order that more people may become aware 
of it. 

3. Arrange some alternate way in which people who cannot attend the Ingather- 
ing can get their offering to you, but stress attendance as an active and vital 
part of the offering. The aim and goal should be for an increased participa- 
tion, as well as the amount received. 

53 



4. Please be sure that your Branch Offering reaches your Convocation 
Treasurer as soon as possible; one check made out to her along with the 
number of envelopes distributed, the number returned, and the number at 
the Ingathering Service. 

CONVOCATION TREASURER: 

Keep accurate record of the Offerings from each Branch and send a copy 
to DIOCESAN U.T.O. TREASURER with one check covering the total 
offering from your Convocation. 

DIOCESAN: 

1. Send a letter in late August to the Parish and Convocation Chairmen 
with instructions for Fall Ingathering. As soon as all reports are in, send a 
check to Mr. Lindley M. Franklin, Jr., Executive Council, 815 Second Avenue, 
New York, N. Y., for the totai amount. 

2. In February, send a letter as above and a check as soon as all reports are in. 

3. Keep accurate records of Offering from each Parish and Convocation. 

4. Type report of amount of Offering from each Parish for Yearbook in March, 
after calendar year has been closed. Send report to Diocesan Treasurer. 

5. Write report for Annual Meeting and for Yearbook. 

6. Make arrangements before Annual Meeting for the Offering to be taken at 
the Communion Service at Annual Meeting — this being the Ingathering for 
the Diocese. The Convocation Treasurers or their representatives are 
asked to do this. Give them a slip of paper with the total amount from 
their Convocation for the year, which they present with the Offering. 



Diocesan Alms Basin 

The idea of the women of the Diocese of North Carolina donating their 
old pieces of gold and silver in order that we might have our own Diocesan 
United Thank Offering Alms Basin was presented to the Executive Board of the 
Woman's Auxiliary by Mrs. B. W . Roberts of St. Philip's Church, Durham. A 
committee was appointed in 1953 to bring about the successful completion of this 
project. This committee consisted of Mrs. William L. Steele of Raleigh, as chair- 
man, Mrs. U. T. Holmes of Chapel Hill, Mrs. Brown Patterson of Greensboro 
and The Right Reverend Edwin Anderson Penick, Bishop of the Diocese of 
North Carolina. 

Parish U.T.O. Custodians collected cherished momentos of silver and gold 
and these were sent through the District Custodians to Mrs. Steele. Finally 5 
barrels and 2 boxes of metal (silver and gold) were collected from women all 
over the Diocese, and these were shipped to Mrs. Louis F. Glasier of New York 
who designed and made the Alms Basin. The Basin is centered with the seal 
of the Diocese executed in gold from the wedding rings, crosses, pins, etc. that 
were donated. Around the edge of the Basin are the words "Accept, O Lord, from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering". 

The Alms Basin was completed and dedicated to the Glory of God by Bishop 
Penick at the Early Celebration of Holy Communion at the Woman's Auxiliary 
Annual Meeting, April 20, 1955, at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina. 

The Diocesan Alms Basin is available to the parishes of the Diocese for use 

54 



at their Spring and Fall United Thank Offering Ingatherings, and may be 
obtained by contacting the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer.

COLLEGE WORK AND CHRISTIAN 
MINISTRIES 

Mrs. Gilbert Ross, Secretary 
1200 Ruayne Road, Greensboro 

COLLEGE WORK is the attempt to help students, faculty, and others on 
campus continue to BE the church where they are. It depends upon the efforts of 
many . . . the chaplains (our diocese has 7 full-time) who provide the Word 
and the Sacraments, teach, counsel, the parish churches which express interest and 
support in a number of ways (many parish priests are part-time chaplains) and 
of course, every Christian whose prayerful concern provides for the extension of 
this serving ministry. 

How to Start as Branch Chairman — 

1. Get the file of your predecessor and talk with her. 

2. Get the names of young people from your parish who will be going away 
to school in the fall (use bulletin or newsletter to request this information if 
not available from church office.) 

3. Send one Card of Commendation per student (going away) to the chaplain 
or parish priest in the academic community. Often this is the only way they 
know the student is on campus. Complete cards carefully, including comments. 
You may order cards (free) from The Executive Council of the Episcopal 
Church, 815 Second Ave., N. Y. C. 10017. 

It's important that you evaluate the needs of your area since so many factors 
enter the picture . . . size of parish, number of students away, location (in, 
near or far from an academic community). Talk with your rector, parents, chap- 
lain and faculty members (if near a campus) . . • any interested person to dis- 
cover needs and set goals. When you come up with good ideas, see how they work 
out, then share so we can list them in next year's yearbook to help someone else. 
Patterns of college work are changing (as are most patterns) to meet new chal- 
lenges. This calls for imaginative and flexible planning. There are many ways, 
specific and general, that we can be a part of college work, no doubt many that 
your branch or parish uses. Consider all the possibilities and decide which are 
best in your situation. 

Remember students, teachers, chaplains, college workers in prayers, corporate 
and individual. 

Keep in touch with students ... by personal letters, cards at special times, 
church bulletins, newsletters, devotional materials. 

Plan a corporate communion breakfast for students before they leave in the 
fall and when they return for the Christmas holidays. 

Plan "So You're Going to College" sessions for High School students after 
graduation, asking rector to write letter of congratulations to graduates enclosing 
pamphlet "So You're Going To College". Mail booklet "College Is For Christians" 
to parents. 

Include a college work item in parish budget (funds continue to be needed for 
Program — see April letter for items included in Program — and for scholarships for 
local students to attend camps, conferences, summer work projects). 

Support the Church Society for College Work in its pioneering program ($10 
for membership). 

Welcome students back into full parish life when they return. 

Parishes in Academic Communities have additional opporunities to — Welcome 

56 



all students and faculty to the parish fellowship — greeting them at services, invit- 
ing them to share in worship, choir, church school, social functions, etc. (some 
parishes make up a sheet listing all functions to give students). 

Invite students into homes, remembering to include foreign students . . . 
perhaps "adopt" a student. 

Talk with chaplain or priest serving the schools, offer assistance, learn of 
needs (ask for names of married students so that couples may visit them). 

Assist the student group, or if none exists, help to organize- 

Have an "Open House" at the parish house, student center, rectory, or at a 
faculty home near campus. 

Assist in providing funds for vocational and other conferences, books, special 
programs and chaplain's discretionary fund. 

As Branch Chairman you'll want to keep the church's mission to the campus 
before the churchwomen and the parish, particularly the opportunities within the 
diocese. Planning a special college work program for the branch (or better, for 
the parish) is one way. Another year-round way is to display college work ma- 
terials ■ . • posters, pamphlets etc. and to use the tract rack. 

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES is the name given to the total ministry of all 
Christians . . . lay, ordained, and special. Traditionally the special concern of 
ECW has been the recruiting of women for full-time work- This continues to be 
an important responsibility but now we stress opportunities for men, women and 
young people in unified parishes. The purpose of Christian Ministries is to make 
these opportunities for full or part-time church work known. 

As Branch Chairman you should be informed on types of professional and 
volunteer opportunities (qualifications, training, etc.) offered by the church. Some 
ways of alerting others to the needs are: 

Plan a branch or parish program on church vocations and volunteer programs. 

Work with the rector to find ways of reaching the young people, perhaps a 
specific program once a year for the church school and youth group. Ask him to 
include vocational opportunities for women when he preaches on the ministry. 

Inform young people (High School and College) about Summer Service 
Projects. 

Start a "Talent File" listing interests and talents of communicants which may 
be used for volunteer work in the church or community. 

Plan a Vocational Guidance Conference or workshop (with other parishes 
or branches) for Jr. and Sr. H. S. students in your area. 

Place recruiting materials in tract rack, using posters and brochures on 
bulletin board. Use parish bulletin for announcements. Supply High School Ad- 
visors with literature. 

Pray that the right persons will offer themselves for the work of the church; 
ask that prayers for recruits be included in church, church school, programs for 
youth, men, and women. 

In summary, we must all work to provide a climate in which young people can 
see challenges in church vocations — remembering that attitudes expressed in the 
home are more important than any other motivation.

PROMOTION 

Mrs. Thomas H. Collins, Secretary 
15 Lake Shore Drive, Chapel Hill 

The Secretary of Promotion has three basic responsibilities: 

1. To maintain and improve communication among members of her own 
Branch. 

2. To interpret and report Branch news of any interest to the general pub- 
lic, and maintain a proper image of the Episcopal Churchwomen. 

3. To serve as a liaison between Branch and Diocesan news services. 

The first purpose can be attained through several means: a monthly News- 
letter to ECW members, stories in the local papers announcing meetings, and/or 
notes in the weekly church bulletin. 

58 



The second goal can be attained by stories in the local press, radio, and 
television, especially where special events are concerned. Publicity may be in- 
formal, rather than stiff and stuffy so long as it remains in good taste. 

The third purpose can be achieved by sending news of Branch activities of 
special interest to the Diocesan Secretary of Promotion. Such news will be pub- 
lished in the Churchman if possible (there's a deadline of a month in advance 
of publication), or, it is hoped by this Chairman, in some sort of Newseletter to 
be sent to all ECW branches. 

Remember, the major goal of what is called "publicity" is communication. 
In all promotion, stop to think with whom you're communicating — your own 
members, the public, or other ECW branches in the Diocese. Next, ask your- 
self "What's it for?" It's necessary to assess the purpose of promotion. Keep ac- 
curate files and a scrapbook to help your successor, and call on the Diocesan Sec- 
retary if needed. 



ALTAR WORK & SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Mrs. P. B. Smith, Chairman 
2712 Mayview Road, Raleigh

ance. It should be nothing less than our very best effort.

2. To provide assistance to Diocesan Missions, Institutions, and colleges in ob- 
taining necessary Altar linens and other equipment.

ration for all church services, cleaning and storing equipment afterward, arrange- 
ment and distribution of flowers, laundering the Altar linens, laundering and

they may organize and train a Junior Altar Guild. 



ALTAR GUILD PRAYERS 
For use before work: 

Almighty God, grant we beseech Thee, that we may handle Holy things with 
reverence, and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion, that it may 
rise with acceptance before Thee and obtain Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

59 



For use after work: 

O God, bless and accept the work of my hands and all who minister to Thee 
in the care and adornment of Thy Sanctuary. Bless and hallow them who love the 
beauty of Thy House, that Thy Holy Name may be glorified; through Jesus Christ 
Thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

SUPPLY 

Mrs. Norman A. Sippell, Secretary 
500 Brinn Drive, Sanford 

The Supply Work of the Diocese will continue through this calendar year. 
This department assists in missionary needs both within and outside of the Diocese. 

Specific instructions are received from the General Division of Women's Work 
in New York City and it is the duty of the Diocesan Secretary of Supply to see 
that these requests are carried out. 

The Diocesan Secretary of Supply is always available in assisting the Sec- 
retaries of Branches in their needs. 

BRANCHES: The Branch Secretary of Supply promotes the work of this 
department within her own branch and keeps her members advised constantly 
of the needs and accomplishments in Supply Work. 

Some of the activities of the Branches have included collecting good cloth- 
ing to be distributed to all suggested outlets; this clothing to be usable, clean and 
pressed; contributing to Thompson Orphanage in their Christmas gifts, furnish- 
ing sporting goods needs for the children, and assisting sending children to camp 
at Vade Mecum. There are also many overseas projects worthy of support.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Mrs. S. Malone Parham, Director 
2915 Meadow Lane, Henderson 

The PURPOSE of the Church Periodical Club is to provide reading material 
for those who could not otherwise obtain it. It is the only organization of the 
Episcopal Church devoted solely to the ministry of the printed word. 

Wherever the church is at work, in your community, in this country and 
overseas, the CPC sends reading material, all without charge. The money to 
carry on this ministry comes from gifts to the CPC National Books Fund. Requests 
for books come to the CPC from every continent in the world, and are filled 
as far as your gifts ivill permit. 

The printed word is one of the most powerful weapons the Christian may 
use. It has been said, "If we did not have a Church Periodical Club, we would 
surely have to create one". 

In our diocese CPC work is done through the Episcopal Churchwomen, headed 
by a diocesan Director of the CPC, and carried out by CPC Secretaries in the 
branches. 

Suggested Procedure for CPC Secretaries 

(1) To Promote the CPC in the Branch: 

Obtain the records from your predecessor in office. 

Learn the purpose of the CPC. Study the CPC Handbook. 

Keep a supply of CPC literature on hand. Distribute it at every chance. 
Help to keep your parish library and tract rack adequately supplied. 

Plan a CPC program each year. Make it simple but inclusive of all phases 
of the work. 

Solicit your Rector's help for the CPC. 

Find people and places in your community to distribute appropriate reading 
material to: viz.; mission churches nearby, school libraries, low income 
families, mental hospitals, nursing homes, jails, etc. 

Keep a record of the work you do, and the money you send to the National 
Books Fund. This will help when you fill out your Annual Report blank. 

VERY IMPORTANT: Send all checks to the Diocesan Director. (NOT to 
the diocesan treasurer). The Director is required to keep books on each 
Branch. 

(2) To Promote Gifts to the National Book Fund: 

Try to get the CPC in your Branch Budget each year. 

Memorial Gifts. Present the idea of sending a personal check to the Books 
Fund as a memorial. Send check to Director, so your branch will get credit, 
and Director can write an acknowledgement to the family. 

Coin Card. This little dime folder produces amazing results. Take some coin 
cards to meetings, and point out how dimes can BUY A BOOK. 

Sell Magazine Subscriptions. Profit to go to the Books Fund. 

61 



Bazaars. Remember the Books Fund when the time comes to decide the 
disposition of your bazaar money. 

Share your ideas. New ways are forever being found by individuals and 
groups with imagination. Write the Director about your projects to earn 
money for the Books Fund. Other branches will be glad to learn about them.
